BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Verbier in the Swiss Alps. I have been working as a guide since 1996. I have been lucky enough to climb all over the world: form the tallest cliffs of the world to 8000ers mountains.

For the past 10 years, I have been combining mountaineering and paragliding projects. This allows me to widen my way of enjoying the mountains and I allowed me to discover a new sensation of freedom. I remember the time where I was envious of the Alpine choughs, I am now one of them.

July 2019

In July 2019, during one of my ascent attempt to get to K2 without oxygen, I managed to take-off from an altitude of 7800m with my Skin. This flight will be engraved in my memory and my heart for the rest of my life.

With my friends

I regularly join friends on hike and fly outings. These are important memories for me as flying with friends is still the best part of our sport.
