With over 16 years in the IT industry, working with both Fortune 500 companies and smaller local enterprises I have succeeded in making a name for myself both within the city of Sudbury and beyond.
If you asked those closest to me to describe me, what they would all say is that I am a go getter. With a love for coding and a drive to succeed, I started my own business at the age of 16. Even at that young age my passion and devotion for technology was only exceeded by my thirst for knowledge.
Since those early years I’ve acquired many new skills including web design, server administration, online marketing and project management. I also bring with me a bag of tricks that I acquired through my previous experience working as a Sales Manager. What I learned in those positions has allowed me to help many small businesses improve their online marketing and promotions.
But who is Mike Lafrenière?
I’ve backpacked my way through Europe and during that trip got to witness the world from atop the Eiffel Tower. The view was one of the most majestic things I’d ever personally experienced and so I’ve started collecting Eiffel Tower statues. This life experience is what led to the many Eiffel Tower statues scattered across the Snagged office window ledges. Every time I look over at them I am reminded of something greater than myself.
I’m also the kind of person who will open a chip bag from the bottom. Sometimes life is about calculated risks and in my life, I’ve definitely taken a lot of those kinds of risks so I’m more than willing to help you with yours in any way that I can.
It’s like bringing a beachball to the beach, just because you have it with you doesn’t mean it isn’t going to rain. On a nice summer’s day however, a beachball and some friends is sometimes all you need. It boils down to knowing when you should bring a beachball and when you should carry an umbrella.
