Who am I:

I dreamed of being an astronaut at an early age after seeing the last of the Apollo missions, which inspired me to build a space capsule out of a washing machine tub in his backyard in St. John, New Brunswick. Knowing the washtub was not going to space, I soon discovered that a good education could create a path to the stars. Suffering from learning difficulties, his mother bought him books about space which motivated him to read and overcome academic challenges and enabled him to study electrical engineering to help qualify to be an astronaut. However, after he received a rejection letter from the CSA in the early 1990’s, Arseneau turned to finance. He spent nearly 25 years in capital markets, specializing in electronic trading, first at JPMorgan in New York in the 1990’s, and most recently as Chief Information Office at the Bank of Montreal.
