Hi! I’m Jean-Philippe, Community Manager for Ford Canada in Quebec. As such, you can contact me en français anytime! I’m based in beautiful Montreal, where car-sized potholes meet with a great diversity of shops, cafés and a buzzing nightlife. I love tweeting and interacting in both languages and I think the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic component of Montreal is what makes it so great!
As much as I like talking about massive horsepower, finely tuned suspensions and crazy track days, I have lately taken an interest in electric and plug-in hybrid cars. I simply find their smoothness and quietness amazing, and get all warm and fuzzy inside when I drive around not burning any gas. I’m really looking forward to the future development of this amazing technology!
If you feel like chatting about things unrelated to cars, I’m also a movie-nut, a caffeine addict and a cat-lover. I love photography and good food, but you won’t see me #Foodstagramming anytime soon. Got to keep some things secret!
Looking forward to writing on interesting things, and hope you will enjoy my stories!
