ABOUT ME
I'm a French skier born in the heart of the Alps. I'm a Freeski competitor and explorer. In 2017 I won my first world title on the Freeride World Tour. I've been skiing on different mountains for filming projects in Georgia, Pakistan, Russia, Greenland, Iran, Alaska, Japan... and still have many more to explore. I'm now skiing in Chamonix Mont-Blanc and am part of an awesome International team.

  • What MOMENT do you ski for?

I ski because it’s what makes me feel alive. Skiing is the best way I’ve found to express myself.

  • What’s your favorite quote? Why does this quote resonate with you? 

“Never give up!“

  • How do you conquer difficult situations? 

I try to relax and I listen to music (RAP, Rock’n Roll, …)

  • What sacrifices have you had to make to get to where you are today and were they worth it? 

I’ve had to train and I’ve questioned myself a lot…

  • What do you do when you aren’t skiing? 

I’m usually still playing in the mountains (climbing, paragliding, …) or I will go surfing sometimes to take a proper break.

  • What strategy do you use to overcome pressure and stress for optimum performance? 

I always try to give myself the best chance to succeed even if I have to train and practice for hours. The most important thing for me is to have no regrets!
