Seeking adventure, he joined the local Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron #763 during high school where he obtained both a glider pilot's license and a private pilots license.
After graduating from l'École Polyvalente Clément Cormier in 1992, he studied a year at le Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean followed by a year at l'Université de Moncton before spending a few more years at the University of New Brunswick where he received a Bachelors degree in Computer Science.
In 2000, he moved to New Hampshire to accept a position with the University of New Hampshire's Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping working with data visualization. There, he got to travel the world as he participated in numerous research expeditions taking him to exotic locations such as Antarctica and the North Pole.
Roland got his first taste of family history research in about 2010 when he decided to see if he could find evidence online to support his father's claim that Roland's grand father Gérard and famous Acadian author Antonine Maillet are first cousins. Well, it turns out they are, and that experience got him hooked.

In 2006, Roland purchased his first motorcycle, a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 250, in order to save on gas and have an easier time parking at work. The theory was that it would pay for itself in 2 years just in gas savings alone.
The following year, in May 2007, he decided to try a track day with Tony's Track Days where he could ride his motorcycle on New Hampshire Motor Speedway's (NHMS) road course in Loudon, New Hampshire. That's all it took to get addicted to track riding and needless to say, the bike never paid itself off.
Since that first taste of the track, Roland has acquire a 1995 Honda RS125 purpose built race bike which he competes with in the Loudon Road Racing Series and the Unites States Classic Racing Association. He picked #763, his former Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron number, as his race number.
- Started racing in August 2009 as a novice with the Loudon Road Racing Series (LRRS) and won in his first ever race! 
- in 2010, competed in his first race outside his home track with the Atlantic Roadracing League (ARL) at Atlantic Motorsport Park (AMP) in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia.
- Raced his Ninja 250 for the first time in July 2011 with ARL at AMP, finishing 2nd for his first podium away from his home track.
- In August 2012, competed in his first endurance race and won the 2012 Big Fish Small Pond 3 hour race, hosted by the Unites States Classic Racing Association (USCRA). Team mates piloting the RS125 were Paul Duval, Shawn Spear and Jake Vader. Crew chief was Jeff Vader.
- In May 2013, started racing his Ninja 250 for the first time at NHMS. This was also the kickoff event of his first full year racing with the USCRA and Roland took the checkered flag on both the Ninja 250 and the RS125. This was his first ever win on the Ninja 250 and his first solo race win on the RS125 with the USCRA.
- Won his second consecutive Big Fish Small Pond title in June 2013. The same team from 2012 was reassembled for this event, but with Shawn Spear on the sideline due to an injury.
- Won his first race as an Amateur with LRRS taking home the Amateur 125GP trophy at the 90th running of the Loudon Classic in June 2013.
- Finished his first USCRA race season in September 2013 as the Modern 125 champion on the RS125 and the Period IV Formula Middleweight champion on the Ninja 250.
