Hi there! My name is Lance Lafontaine.

I am a student at Concordia University in software engineering, with a previous degree in molecular biology. I enjoy all things tech, science and startups, but I especially love web development, open source software, and camping (outdoors).

Chat with me @LanceLafontaine or lance.lafontaine92@gmail.com, I love meeting new people in virtual and physical settings.
