Antoine is my rock and strength. He is a very loving, dependable and patient man and I am very thankful to be with him. His support and strength of character has lifted my spirit up during some sad moments in my life when I lost loved ones. I have seen firsthand on many occasions that he puts me and our family first. When I needed it or when my family has needed it – like when my uncle passed - he has taken leave from work and on occasion worked from home to be with me and comfort me.
He is very intelligent and curious. Professionally he is accomplished and holds an important post in a Financial Technology company as Director of Engineering, and even though that may be so, I have always admired how he manages to separate and balance his home and work life. As soon as he leaves the office for the day he is able to put his work aside and enjoy our home life.
When at home he loves spending time catching up on current affairs in the news, playing backgammon with me, playing video games and thankfully as he is very good with his hands, helping around the house with the handy work like putting up our lamps or hanging pictures or fixing shelves. I am blessed to have a willing and knowledgeable person at home.
Being an engineer, of course he also loves all things technical so in his spare time when he gets a chance he also likes creating fun social network apps for us and our friends to use, like one which he is currently working on called ‘Ya’ that allows friends to get connected by interests.
Outside of the house he loves hiking, walking, skiing in the winter (he’s very good at it) and enjoying time together with friends and family.
He has so much to give and teach I am proud that one day he will be father to our child. He is very much looking forward to that day to share and teach all the activities he loves to our child.
