Biography:

I'm a mountain guide in Chamonix but I'm also cameraman, specialised in shooting in difficult terrain.  I was born in Marseille and my parents still live there. I replied to a posting from the filmmakers back in December 2005 when they were looking for an old mountain guide. I told them I wasn't the character they were looking for but that I could helop organise the filming. I am featured in the book, 'Kiss or Kill: Confessions of a Serial Climber'.
