"At first, it was just about exploring the woods around my home, but as I grew up, I needed broader horizons. I traveled, met new people, tried new foods, and discovered new cultures. I wanted to venture into ever more remote places; I needed something more. That's when I started practicing climbing and ski mountaineering.
I've always enjoyed sharing my passion and experience with my friends and climbing partners, and now, as a Mountain Guide, I do it with the people I work with too."
