"The bad ass side of Raincity Studios. The only guy I know that can sport a mohawk and a punk metal shirt into a business meeting and walk out with a signed contract.
Gives new meaning to the term "He's french."
Wicked guy, and a wonderful person to have as a friend and business partner."

"Exhibit A in the continuing Anglophone delight in hearing excellent English with a soupcon of French accent."
