Rock Climbing Instructor
ONCE UPON A TIME OUTDOORS…
I have always had a passion for climbing and the outdoors. I started climbing at the age of 8. At this time it wasn’t a cliff, it was the side of my house. If it wasn’t my main activity when I was young, I was always climbing. In my later years I devoted a lot of my time to the art of skateboarding. I ran my first marathon at the age of 30 and for 10 years I ran long distance races, such as the small race of the UTMB (90 km). Cycling, hiking and ski mountaineering are activities that I enjoy. I adore the mountains in winter and enjoy long distance traverses in the snowy landscape of remote places.
FROM THE LASER TO THE ROCK
For 15 years I worked in the Paris region in the research and development of laser systems for fusion. During this time I was lucky enough to live in the forest of Fontainebleau where I could boulder almost every day! I have since changed my lifestyle in search of freedom. In 2015, I completed my climbing guide certification with the French National Diploma. This course takes a year and a half to complete. It focuses on teaching skills and safety in sport, multi-pitch and trad climbing to people of all levels and abilities. My studies have given me the opportunity to climb extensively in many regions of France (Les Calanques, Le Verdon and La Jonte are a few favourites). I have also enjoyed climbing in Suirana (Spain), Finale Ligure (Italy), San Vito lo Capo (Sicily), Leonidio (Greece) and Thakhek (Laos).
A VERTICAL LIFE
I continue my journey with the desire to convey the fullness of the great spaces and vertical life. I like to share the culture and practice of climbing in nature. Serenity, kindness and attentiveness are the qualities I hope to portray to the people I support around the cliffs.
ON THE ROCK OF KALYMNOS
My travels have brought me to Kalymnos and its charms have kept me here. This fascinating island has seduced me in many ways: the mildness of its climate, the tranquility of its landscapes and, of course the richness of its cliffs. I organise daily climbing sessions and activities for all levels to share the magic of this place that transforms all who come to experience it. Whether you stay for a few hours or a few weeks, you can enjoy rock climbing on Kalymnos!
