Passionate, driven and versatile.
A few words that define you as a person?
Determined, dynamic and stubborn (which friends and family often perceive as temperamental!)
What are your passions besides skiing/climbing/mountaineering/trail running?
My passion for the mountains is very time-consuming. When I’m not working as a mountain guide, I journey around the world to realize the many projects and dreams I have in mind.
Your best and worst mountain memories?
Each mountain memory is unique, and each excursion is full of great moments and enjoyment. But if I had to name one, it would be from February last winter on the north face of Les Drus, with the ever-present feeling that I was lucky to live such adventures and spend so much time up there.
The worst? Waiting for 20 days, stuck in a tent on the Ruth Glacier in Alaska, for the snow to stop. By that time, it was four meters deep, and we didn’t get a weather window!
What does Rise Up mean to you?
To me, Rise Up is a mindset. Having the willpower to achieve your objectives, realize your dreams and get the most out of life.
Why do you advise people to go to the mountains to do outdoor activities?
In my opinion, going to the mountains is a good way to grow aware of nature’s beauty, and to get back to essentials.
