Born on August 18th 1997, it took me 8 years to discover snowboarding. I quickly fell In love with it, everyday was a good day to enjoy laps with friends in our playground, our home resort Risoul 1850. I slowly get into competition until my first national championship podium in 2011, then everything went quite fast, joined the French national team in 2012, get into my first World Cup the same year. Few years later I did my first World Cup’s top 5 then straight after my first podium on an International event, Frostgun Val d’Isère (TTR 5*), a big step in my career because it earned me my ticket to the Air&Style Tour the next year. While I was doing all those contests I also tried to get slowly into the filming scene with apparition in movies like Comfort Zone or Crétin des Alpes (Almo). So after years travelling the world all year I really want to improve my skills in the backcountry and wild mountains. As I grew up in Hautes-Alpes I really want to enjoy what is rideable at home like Queyras or Les Ecrins, mountains are calling and sometimes you just have to look at what is surrounding you :)

TELL US ABOUT A STAND-OUT MOMENT FROM YOUR SNOWBAORD CAREER.

First international podium during FrostGun Val d'Isère back in 2016. The event was insane, as it was in France, I was kind of the local boy, so a lot of people were on my side, put myself on the podium during the last run of the contest. Then I realized I'd never Champagne showered anything in my life, so I can tell you it was not really glorious.
