I was born and I started cycling near Paris. And now I live in Châtel in Haute-Savoie (in the French Alps). I moved to Châtel to be able to do as much mountain biking as I could.

I started freeriding when I was 13 years old with friends from college, I had a Voltage Yz Scott, it was not made for it at all, after a few years using it I changed to a Scott Voltage Fr 30 from 2010. This allowed me to go on holiday for a week in Châtel with the father of the friends with whom I started cycling, then we returned to Châtel every summer, always a little longer. Until I lived there for my part.

I then had a Gambler 730 from 2013. Living in Haute-Savoie and having a permit allows me to travel as much as I can on spots or other bike parks in France. I would like to discover the Canadian and New Zealand spots later on.

I have never been too competitive, I prefer to take pictures of cycling with my friends. After starting freeriding we had fun making some videos with my father’s old camcorder, we had a lot of fun. Now I make videos thanks to the GoPro and photos with photographer friends.

I studied in the Paris region, in business. After obtaining my BTS I moved to Châtel, to work in a sports shop, Mountainbike in summer and Ski/Snowboard in winter.
