Few words that define you as an athlete:

Few words that define you as a person :

What are your passions besides skiing / climbing / mountaineering / trail running ?
I love mountain life, go fishing, pick mushrooms, I love everything that goes on in nature ... and play golf!

Your best and worst memory in the mountains :
I have no worse time in the mountains, just great lessons to remember. Respect the mountain, she will accept you up to your respect.

Why do you feel part of the Millet family ?
Millet helped me when I was nothing and contributed to my evolution, so we are now like a family.

What does that mean about you, Rise Up ?
"Rise up" is just the summary of my career: raise your goals, your ambitions, raise your determination, and everything becomes possible.

Why do you advise people to go out in the mountains to do outdoor activities ?
To be happy in life you must get to know yourself: in my opinion, the best way is to face the natural elements, and to push the limits, thus by doing various and varied activities. That's how we learn what we are, and what we want to become.
