White Sessions …

I found a way to express myself through the art of movement, drawing temporary lines on the canvas of these snowy mountains, in harmony and with respect for nature. The feeling of being free in this changing environment is my natural stimulus.
I love snowboarding in all its aspects: freeriding, split boarding, making turns on the slopes, freestyling in the fun park.
When I am teaching or guiding, I can share this experience and passion with others.
