Félix Pharand-Deschênes

Founder & CEO

For the past 15 years, Félix has been working as a Science Communicator. Early on in his career, he realized the importance of illustrating scientific concepts for his conferences, at Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic and elsewhere. Passionate about scientific culture and cartography and eager to use his academic background in Anthropology, he combines his graphic design and image editing abilities with a keen artistic eye to produce attractive pedagogical tools. Inspired by his deep love of nature, he is fascinated by Earth’s biosphere and the impact of human presence on this planet. A firm believer in global education, he founded Globaïa in 2009.
