Born in the remote Quebec town of Rouyn-Noranda, Frédérick Boucher-Gaulin knew he wanted to work around cars ever since he was a child. After spending his teenage years learning how to turn a wrench on cars—usually through trial and error—and perfecting his driving skills on the roads and trails around his hometown, he moved to Quebec City to study Car Sales, earning a professional diploma in the process. He spent a number of years selling cars at various dealerships.
After moving in the Montreal region, he worked as a valet, a job that enabled him to drive a wide variety of vehicles. This gave him the idea of writing his impressions of the vehicles he had to park. After being convinced to publish his short articles, he took his first steps into the world of automotive journalism by creating and managing his own blog.
Now a writer with LC Média, Frédérick is tasked with feeding www.guideautoweb.com and www.carguideweb.com with fresh news, and keeping tabs on the latest trends and changes in the automotive world. His job also involves contributing to a wide range of projects in the Le Guide de l'auto print publication and on the websites.
