"I love the outdoors, spending time with my family and my best friends. I may be totally addicted to the gliding sensation that paragliding has to offer. "
BIOGRAPHY

I was born in the French Southern Alps, in the Ubaye Valley where I grew up practising a lot of ski. I was selected to join a sport and studies program with a focus on ski until the end of high school. At the same time I was already paragliding with my dad. I did my first solo flight at 10, then I went into competition and nowadays I enjoy world cup level competitions.

I studied in Annecy for 4 years, a great time to get a huge flight volume. I am currently a test pilot and I am working as a designer with Olivier from the Niviuk R&D department in Switzerland. I have a true passion for paragliding, especially long distance flights, but I also like hike and fly as well as spending time in the mountains.

Best competition memory with friends

The 2021 Bornes to Fly edition. I registered without proper training. My friends’ good mood and sharing this experience with them turned to be an amazing week-end full of emotions.

Satisfaction

After a week-long competition in Italy where we were presenting the new X-One, reaching the goal in good position with other X-One was a great moment of satisfaction. We were pleased and proud to confirm that we had designed a top-performance glider in position to win the most demanding competitions.

Original

Top landing on Mont-Blanc on June 26th, 2019. Quite an unexpected day with very little preparation ahead, that ended up at 5400m above the Mont-Blanc range. We did a quick stop at the summit where we met all our friends. I also used this opportunity to wish a happy birthday to my sister.
