“Things that you do not really want to do, are impossible”
Mike Horn
Skiing since the age of 2, I went through alpine skiing before turning gradually to freeride and ski touring. Passionate about mountains and travels, I try to discover the world by putting my spatulas everywhere.
Few words that describe you as an athlete:
When I have a project, I give all myself to realize it, while keeping safety as a priority. My desire to go forward and my motivation allow me to face the technical difficulties, and life in general.

Few words that describe you as a person:
Sharing is an important value for me and for my mountain practice; I am a generous one, in sport and in life, and I try to communicate my joy of living with the people around me.

What are your passions besides skiing / climbing / mountaineering / trail running?
Beside the mountains, I am also passionate about sea sports, such as surfing and sailing, which I practice regularly in the South West of France.

Your best and your worst moment in the mountains:
My best moment, probably my first Glacier Round by ski with my brother.
My worst moment, the fatal accident of my brother before my eyes on the volcano Villarica in 2016.

Why do you feel part of the Millet team?
I am proud to be part of the Millet team, which brings together passionate athletes, while highlighting the values ​​of the mountain, which are also mine: passion, sharing, safet

What does it mean for you, "Rise Up"?
The "Rise Up" spirit represents this desire to move forward, to new heights, to innovate while relying on expertise and a solid legacy.

Why do you suggest people to do outdoor and mountain activities?
The mountain is an environment that allows you to discover yourself, to look for your own limits and to share privileged moments of life with your friends. When you are in the mountains, you live fully the present moment, and you feel emotions that you cannot find otherwhere.
