Grégoire Teyssier began collecting stamps when he was 11 years old. He plunged into postal history, starting with postal history of France, at the age of 14. Born in France, on arrival in Quebec in 1980 at the age of 15, he found Quebec postal history fascinating and began to collect it. He has written more than 50 articles in French for journals such as Le Bulletin de la SHPQ, Philatélie Québec, and The Canadian Philatelist, and published with his friend Marc Beaupré Initiation aux marques postales du Québec (Introduction to Quebec Postal Marks).
