UIAGM / IFMGA High Mountain Guide
As a Belgian who moved to Grenoble in 2005, I don't get tired of living in the heart of the mountains.
Nothing tied me to the mountain... I was born on March 27th 1983 near Brussels. As many Belgian kids, I played football and judo. I wanted to practice climbing but my mother didn't want me to. "Too far!", she used to say, "you can do it when you are in college". And so I did (we have to listen to our mothers!). When I was 18, I started studying History and I joined the climbing room in Louvain-la-Neuve. Two disciplines that came into my live and stayed forever. Climbing, I did my first 5a, then 6a. I started going to cliffs in a small Belgian rock (Yvoir), my first large climb was in l'Offre at Verdon, and then my first mountain course was the unforgettable epic Snow Dome in the Ecrins.
I barely knew how to put on crampons or how to tie a knot, but I had decided to become a high mountain guide. In 2005 I finished my History studies, left Belgium and started my adventure in the mountain. Training, mountain courses, skiing... In 2007, I was a member of the National Excellence Alpinism Team of the French Alpine Club. That's when I met many people in my wavelength, a great feeling that encouraged us to go on a thousand adventures in the Alps, the Himalaya and elsewhere.
In 2009, I started studying to be a high mountain guide in the National Ski and Alpinism School at Chamonix (ENSA). My dream has come true!
I always keep dreaming of summits, edges, expeditions... There is enough to fill 10 lifes, so let's start now! Either with my friends or as your guide, the mountain is always a pleasure.

Elis is an attentive and caring guide. I climbed with him Pollux and MontViso. He adapts his programs with great professionalism. I feel in total confidence with him both in the effort and in the discovery.
