I was born in 1987 in Chamonix, a place renowned for its breathtaking mountain vistas. My journey into the world of climbing began at a young age, guided by my father, a seasoned mountain guide, who generously passed on his passion for the mountains to me.

As I grew older, I found myself increasingly drawn to the majestic peaks that surrounded me. Starting in the Alps, I quickly felt the irresistible urge to explore other mountain ranges with like-minded friends. The first expedition took me to Peru, and from there, I ventured into Nepal and India, each experience adding to the tapestry of my mountain adventures.

Balancing my time between rock climbing in the South of France and the allure of high-altitude climbs in the Himalayas, my life's primary obsession became centered around the pursuit of climbing, embarking on adventures with cherished companions, and immersing myself in the great outdoors.

After experimenting with a "normal" job as a school teacher for three years, I made a life-changing decision to follow my true calling and become a Mountain Guide. Since 2015, I've had the privilege of sharing my love for the mountains with clients, and I wouldn't trade this profession for anything else in the world.

Today, I am proudly a part of the 'Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix,' an esteemed honor for someone who grew up in this valley. My dreams are filled with an abundance of new projects, both for work and for the sheer joy of it, wherever my unwavering motivation may lead me!
