First licensed as a Canadian Amateur Radio Operator on July 13, 1977, at the age of 12, Sylvain has been operating under the same callsign ever since. Sylvain was introduced to the Amateur Radio by Lionel VE2DTV 7 months earlier.

VE2FET was living in Montreal at the time and quickly became a member of the local club VE2UMS. Among his other interests, the one for computers emerged in 1979. Under the early guidance of Pierre, VE2BSI (now VE2ICI), he developed a fascination for programming, by first toying with microprocessor machine code and soon enough, 6502 assembler. Within a few short years, Sylvain became a world-level specialist in transactional database design and the fine art of transaction performance tuning. He's the creator of the product SQL-Programmer(r) (1992) among others and founder of Sylvain Faust Inc (1988).

Sylvain was born in February 1965 in St-Hyacinthe, province of Quebec. He later moved to Montreal at the age of 8.

Sylvain has been living in the Ottawa-Gatineau area (west of Montreal) between 1986 and 2007, with the exception of 2 years in Austin, Texas, and is now living in the Ste-Anne-Des-Lacs/St-Sauveur area (FN25wu) just north of Montreal.
