Born and raised in Chamonix, my origins have fuelled my passion for mountain sports and motivated me to make them my career.  I enjoy the contact with both my French and International clientele and find it very rewarding.

Father of two young boys, I have designed and built our own chalet in the style typical to this region.  We count ourselves lucky to posses sufficient land to cultivate a selection of our own fruit and vegetables, and raise a small flock of chickens.

Passionate about sport, I enjoy running ultra-marathons and Mountain biking; they keep me fit too!
