About the guide

guide profile img

I started mountaineering at 16 in the Mont Blanc Massif. I immediately loved the diversity of mountain sports: ice, snow, rock, the fact that activities change every season and we must aim for perpetual adaptation. It is the human emotions experienced up there that make me want to progress. 

After 4 years of competition in ice climbing, I joined the French national mountaineering group. Expeditions in the Dolomites, Norway, and Alaska are a great opportunity to travel and excel in a strong group. 

I'm 24 years old and live in Annecy (Haute Savoie), close to the Mont Blanc Massif. I am aspirant guide and it will be my pleasure to share with you my experience on the Aravis' limestone or the snowy slopes of Mont Blanc.

Beyond the classic excursions and the satisfaction of reaching a summit, I would like you to discover the warmth of a sunrise or the joy of a celebratory hug.
