The mountain in the skin, the taste for sport in the genes. Parisian by birth but Savoyard at heart!

 

From an early age, my parents made me climb at Fontainebleau, took me in the porter to see the Bossons glacier and hike at Lac Blanc, ski at Grand Bornand. My vocation was born there, my path is all mapped out. We move to Lyon to get closer to the Alps, then I leave the parental home to enter the section fitted out at the high school for mountain professions in Moûtiers. I meet other passionate young teenagers with whom to learn, to forge character and physique. Among them, many are now my colleagues and guide friends... Then Annecy, the IUT in sport-study. I devote several years to endurance sports, ski mountaineering and running. I'm going to live for a year and a half in the Dolomites, in Bolzano, where I work in product development at Salewa and finish my AMM course at the same time.

Back in France for my master's degree in International Business at the University of Savoie, I am seriously getting back into climbing and mountaineering, finishing my mountaineering list with my lifelong rope companions, then presenting myself at the mountain guid school test. After leaving my job as a technical sales representative for export. The fear and apprehension that made me doubt about this profession have now disappeared. No doubt, it's my way, I found the right route and will never leave it.

I now live in the Chambéry valley, from where I can easily radiate winter and summer throughout the French, Swiss, Italian and Austrian Alps, in search of massifs and routes to discover. Main goal: not the same route twice in the season ! In love with our mountains and the Alpine countries, their cultures and their languages, I like the great immersive and wild crossings on skis, the aesthetics of a rocky ridge, the technicality of a climbing route. The exploration of the Alps, the transmission of my passion and the sincere relationship that I establish with my clients are the heart of my motivation for this job.

In order to remain efficient technically, physically and in my decision-making, I maintain a good personal practice of mountaineering, climbing and skiing, for my greatest pleasure. I will be happy to meet you in the mountains, slippers on your feet, ice ax in hand or on skis, to share beautiful moments together up there !

 

A little nod to my career, I now accompany the high school students of Moûtiers in their mountain training. The circle is complete, and back home, I am happy to help these young enthusiasts, in whom I find myself, to realize their dreams.
