BIOGRAPHY

I'm from Orsières in Switzerland. I studied Chemical Engineering. I learned to fly in 2008. I became tandem pilot in 2014. I became a paragliding and speedriding instructor in 2016 and I founded with 2 friends “Les Ailes Du Saint-Bernard” school.

I started to fly Acro in 2015. In 2017 I took part in the World Cup competitions being part of the Swiss Team. That gave me a push to learn and improve my flying knowledge and skills. And so, I had the opportunity to fly in different countries like Norway, Italy, Turkey, China, Spain, France, Austria, Netherlands…
I feel really lucky to have been able to meet such different people from around the world during my flying journeys.

Now I'm focusing on myself, on my familly of course, but also on acro-shows, photographs and specially on the transmission of my knowledge to my students.
I like to fly for myself and to teach paragliding and speedriding and I would like our school to grow as much as possible.
