Bio

I was born in Levron a small Village in the Swiss Alps close to the ski resort of Verbier. That's why I practice th ski since child. I played football until I tried the ski mountaineering in 2013. Since this moment I begin to love this sport and start training for it. I did my first competitions in 2014 and was selected in the swiss national team in 2016. Continue to train to achieve my goals.
