    About the Guide

     
     

    As a certified International Mountain Leader and an engineer in geology and mountain biology, I am passionate about the many facets offered by the mountain environment, in France or abroad.
    I like to escape for several days in the great outdoors of Scotland, Oman, Corsica, the Alps or Kyrgyzstan with my backpack. But I also like walking the most beautiful trails in the world running, in "light" mode, with little equipment on the back.
    I am indeed a trail-running specialist since I am one of the best French in the discipline, accumulating dozens of victories on many races all over France.

    I will be listening to you and I will know how to give you good advice at the right time to help you progress in your practice. I will not hesitate to talk to you about geology, botany, fauna or geomorphology, sciences that I particularly like.
