Xavier was born in France, in the beautiful city of Gap in the French Alps. To this day, he still “needs” to see mountains on the horizon for his own sanity.
He got his bachelor degree in Computer Science Engineering in one of the top french universities. After doing his mandatory military service, he traveled to Canada where he met his beautiful wife to be in Vancouver BC.
They lived in Paris and southern France for ten years and had three amazing boys. During that time, he created his own Web Agency “Metaphore Multimedia”.
He then joined a startup called Le Memo which is an online lead generation business in the event industry and moved it to Canada in 2005.
In 2011, he was hired as the General Manager for Chameleon Creative in beautiful Campbell River BC where he enjoyed working with great staff and clients. He managed various web-based projects for large and small businesses and associations.
As of August 2015, Xavier has launched his own business “Dreaming Tree Web Solutions” to assist businesses with their online presence.
Being creative is more than providing good design. By working with many small business owners over the last 18 years, Xavier gained extensive experience about online marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), web design campbell river, social media… these are all part of the creative process and the trick is to stay focused on the bottom line to generate more business and keep our customers engaged and happy.
We recently updated our website and Xavier is always a treat to work with. He has a ton of great ideas and is able to share them in a way that makes sense. He works quickly to solve any problems and has a vast amount of knowledge to apply to everything web design.
When we compared quality and passion, Xavier was by far the leader in our eyes. Have very much enjoyed working with Xavier over the last several years and look forward to many more projects together

I have known and worked with Xavier for almost 10 years now. Xavier is a consummate professional. He is an expert in his field and is a most conscientious individual. It is rare to have someone who has successfully created two online companies also provide cost-effective web development services for other companies. I am delighted with the web site Xavier has developed for INSPIRE CANADA and will continue to use Xavier to support my online marketing needs. Contact him and have a discussion about your requirements, I believe you will find this an excellent investment.
I learned about Xavier thru a friend who spoke highly of him and his work. I started out with my site thru another designer who dropped my project midway - not a pleasant opportunity for a new web designer to begin with. Xavier took the project over, not only did he work with the ideas, colors and theme that I began with, he also brought new ideas to the project. I was so grateful for his professional guidance, insight and technical abilities that brought my site to completion. Xavier continues to be our webmaster and I feel that I am in good hands. If we have an issue on updates he addresses them quickly. Sonja Picard - artist / jewelry designer
I've had the pleasure of working with Xavier for several years as a member of our Interactive Design advisory committee at North Island College. I have been impressed with his insight and well considered and useful contributions. Without the expertise and real generosity of people like Xavier, we couldn't stay as current as we are in our programming; he certainly has earned my recommendation.
