BIOGRAPHY

I am a professional athlete specialized in high level mountaineering/paragliding combos. My areas of expertise are advanced ice climbing and mixed climbing for the mountaineering part as well distance flying for the paragliding part.

Double world champion of XContest in the tandem category and two world records of distance flying. I am also a paragliding/climbing/canyoning instructor as well as a ski patroller. I undertook the mountain guide training.

My most remarkable achievements:

Solo speed climbing the North Face of Grandes Jorasses with a glider in 3h30, flying from and to Chamonix in a few hours only.
Various combos like Annecy-Mont Blanc-Aiguille Verte in climb and fly in less than 24 hours (unsupported).
My distance records in tandem and solo in Brazil and in the Alps.
My high level mixed climbing combos in the Alps.
