Meet the Crew!

Hey Community!

 

Ever wonder about the crew supporting the Fido Community? We thought it’d be a good idea to tell everyone a little bit about ourselves (yes – we are real people!). So, we came up with a short Q & A which should help you get to know us!

 

Let’s begin, shall we?

Name, nickname & title

My name’s Julien! I don’t really like nicknames, so I say I don’t have any, but some people call me Jules.

 

Cat or dog person?

I made an Instagram account for my cat, so I think this answers the question.

Favorite meal

It’s hard to choose, but I’d go with Beijing duck, poutine or pasta.

 

Moment of triumph

I’d usually say graduating university, but that’s not very original, so I’ll go with travelling in China by myself.

I’ve never seen Titanic! For some reason people never believe me then I tell them that.

 

Ultimate vacation destination

London or China.

 

Anything else?

I love watching cooking shows, but I never have time to cook.
