I first started skiing aged three in the southern french alps, but at the age of six was already looking for a more adventurous discipline and so I took up snowboarding.
Moving to the French Alps permanently in 2000 when I was nine, allowed me to be even more in contact with winter sports and I took up racing at a local level, still snowboarding for myself whenever possible, for the most part off piste, which is where my interest in Boarder-cross was ignited.

When I learnt about Boarder-cross I knew that it was a sport for me, it linked the racing attitude with the technicality and sensations that I got from snowboarding off-piste. For me it is an amazingly visual sport – you know whether you are in front or not !
I started racing in 2009 and managed to finish on a high with a 7th place in a national competition in France.

In 2010 as-well as working teaching skiing I trained for most of the season all around Europe competing in the Swiss and French National events as well as the European Cups. I also became the British overall Snowboard-cross Champion at the end of the season and was selected for the 2010 Junior World Championships which were held in August in New Zealand were I placed 22nd.

From these results I was selected this summer for the Olympic 2018 Generation Camp. There I was introduced to the physical and physiological aspects that will accompany the 2018 Winter Olympics.
For the coming season I am part of the British Snowboard-cross Team and will be competing all over Europe in the European cups and National events. I plan on placing in the top ten in the University games in Turkey, furthermore I aim to defend my British Champion title for snowboard-cross in 2011.
