Olivier Laurin

I'm a bilingual multimedia journalist from Montréal, Québec.

My curiosity drives me to explore the intricate relationships between people and their communities. I'm particularly drawn to stories that expose social injustices, advocate for animal welfare, highlights captivating individuals.

Beyond journalism, I'm a passionate traveler, music aficionado, devoted movie enthusiast and an unapologetic food lover. You might spot me wandering through nearby forests, as I'm currently training for an ultramarathon that my friends convinced me to tackle.
