Working as a UIAGM/IFMGA mountain guide all over the world has taught me a lot about what it means to share your passion! Curiosity is the word that defines me, that of discovering mountains and the humans who love them.

Make your dreams come true and hire a IFMGA guide!

Today, my life is shared (but the border is thin and often gets lost) between my amateur and professional practice of mountaineering and climbing. Travelling and discovering new walls with Johanna, my wife, or with my friends, and facilitating alpine dreams by working as a guide are my motivations!
