As the Director of Arkadium Canada, Jean-Guy is responsible for spearheading all efforts related to the company’s focus on the development of mobile games. He has over ten years of experience as a programmer, with more than half of those years developing games for both mobile and online platforms. He was most recently the Director of New Media at InViVo Communications where he was responsible for managing over six million dollars in projects per year. Previously, he served as the technical lead at DHX Interactive.

Jean-Guy also worked at Silverbirch where he was involved in the high-level development and prototype work of mobile games. There he was promoted to technical lead and his focus shifted toward management, strategy, and production. During this time Jean-Guy made the business case for DHX to get into iPhone game and App development, which ultimately resulted in the company receiving its developer's license in July 2008.
