BIOGRAPHY

I am a paraglider pilot and I love the mountains. I started to fly at a young age in Orcières 1850, the ski resort near my home place.

I flew for the first time with my dad when I was 20 month old. I joined the Pôle Espoir in Font Romeu and got a really good training to perform in competitions. I love flying with performant gliders and going to international competitions.

I now try to keep improving my skills by going to world cups while enjoying this wonderful sport!
I love to rock climb and practice mountain sports, I usually have my Skin with me so I can get back to the valley with my glider!

My most memorable flight

My most memorable flight was when we first flew in Rio. We flew over the Corcovado, spent 4 hours in the air with friends, in the heat, facing the sea and enjoying ourselves… A memory I will keep to my very last day!

My best competition result

I did my best competition result on my first World Cup in Reunion Island in 2016. I had just finished Pôle Espoir and had no special ambition. I completed all the tasks and got better and better each day. I was ranked 7th just before the last task, I was already happy with myself. I knew I would be ranked in the top 25 pilots even if the last task was a disaster. I eventually won the last task and I was ranked 2nd at my first World Cup…
