Home town: Chamonix
Education: UIGM Mountain Guide
I have been skiing and climbing all of my life. From the age of 7 to I was 16 I was a competitive ski jumper and x-country skier. But at that age I wanted something more out of my skiing/climbing life and I decided I wanted to be a ski bum in Chamonix. The dream became reality at age 18 when I packed my bags and moved to my dream town. Steepskiing was the name of the game, and I dedicated all my time to skiing the steeps around Chamonix and at the age of 19 I skied the North Face of Aig. du Midi for the first time. The summer I spent back in Norway saving money and the in the fall I went to Yosemite to chase my other passion, Climbing. In Yosemite I managed to climb some of my dream routes like The Nose and Zodiac on El Capitan and The North West Face of Half Dome. I have been a professional skier since 2000 and have traveled around the world to ski and film for major skimovie producers like Matchstick Productions and Warren Miller. I have always been very interested in gear and in the last couple of years I have been involved in product development with many of my sponsors. I have also finished my exams to become a UIGM Mountain Guide. I hope this website will inspire you to chase your mountain dream and that you will find the information provided interesting and useful.
