What does being part of the Picture Family represent to you?

Being part of the Picture Family means to surround myself with motivated people willing to reduce their ecological footprint as pro-riders, people willing to innovate towards more sustainable gear and, above all, people willing to share a common vision of our sport.

Tell us, how did you start snowboarding?

I started skiing at 3 years old and when I was about 9, I had the chance to try snowboarding for the first time in a winter holiday camp. I really wanted to snowboard to copy my older brother. The next winter, my parents rented me a snowboard for the season and I rapidly became addicted.

What are your future plans and ambitions?

Filming a full backcountry video part without shaping any spot (riding only natural spots), while minimizing my environmental impact associated to it. I want to share my vision of sustainable snowboarding and show that we can do better with less.

Best memory relative to snowboarding

Stomping my first backflip ever!
