My passion for snow sports has motivated me throughout my career. I first followed a formation as a snow sports instructor and obtained a federal patent. I then made a career in the competitive sport, alpine sector by working more than 15 years at Swiss-Ski team. I worked as a technician, assistant coach, head-coach in World Cup and finally from 2015 to 2019 as Alpine Director. During this period, I had the chance to participate as a coach and team leader in 4 Olympic Winter Games and 3 World Championships.  

Between two periods at Swiss-Ski, I also had the chance to work in the sports industry, as racing manager, alpine sector, for 2 companies active in the field of racing sports.
Since 2021, I have the chance to return to the roots of my professional vision and have taken over the management of Swiss Snowsports, the umbrella federation of Swiss Snowsports professional instructor and Swiss Ski Schools.
