Best memorable session:
A dream powder session in my home resort with my friend Brew and my girlfriend Chloé.
Best trip up until now:
Couple summer ago I went to Australia and New Zealand with Andrew, Brynild, Ju, Nana and Marie. It was a trip with snowboarding session and to enjoy and discover my friends Andrews, home country and culture. Thanks to Robinson's family for their hospitality.
Backround in snowboarding:
I started skateboarding at the age of 11. I wanted to replace my skis with a snowboard for the winter season and right away I was passionate. At that time we new only one way to ride: straight then jump straight then jump again, with my two childhood friends Fernando and mat we only thought to fly, that’s what interested us and gave us good feeling. At 15 years I started doing halfpipe contest, a whole new world opened to me. I did good and that allowed me to join sportschool and travel to many resorts.

Goals in snowboarding:
First and most importantly, snowboarding must bring me pleasure and makes me happy. I enjoy riding different playgrounds and places. I want to always improve my style and master more and more different cool tricks. I aim to film a maximum this winter for a good part in the next Hara Kiri prod and also get the chance to ride in the backcountry for a maximum of shooting with my sponsors and magazines.
