Originally from the north of the French Alps, I grew up near a small family ski resort 30km from Geneva, "Sommand-Praz-de-lys". At the age of 13, I started snowboarding, snow videos and magazines were a great source of inspiration for me. I didn't always spend my winters riding. I studied physiotherapy for 5 years in Brussels, Belgium, far away from my mountains. Now, thanks to the flexibility of my job as a physiotherapist, I am able to free up my time in the winter to ride all season long between competitions, shoots and adventures.
TELL US ABOUT A STAND-OUT MOMENT FROM YOUR SNOWBAORD CAREER.
Training my debut season with good company, making finals at my first World Championship & backing that w/ an 8th place at Corvatsch WC.
WHEN YOU'RE NOT SNOWBOARDING, WHAT DO YOU LOVE DOING?
I grew up skating, surfing, camping, fishing, etc. If it’s not snowboarding, it’s anything that gets the dopamine and/or adrenaline going. That being said, I also really love a day in with some snacks, Netflix and a duvet. Gotta have the balance .
WHAT'S A PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WISH YOU HAD WHEN YOU STARTED OUT SNOWBOARDING?
The goal is one thing. The way there is another thing. Enjoy the time you have in the places you ride, and the people you share the path with.
FAVOURITE SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS?
I wouldn’t say I have a specific playlist I favouritise. I could easily go from say The Offspring to Taylor Swift. However, I’m a huge fan of 90’s/early 2000’s - Punk, Hiphop, Rock, Alt, Pop, the lot - just depends on the days mood really.
