« Dreams are part of life, make your life a dream. »


« I was born June 13, 1972 in Revin. It was at the age of 11 years that I put on my first running shoes - in athletics. Quickly my passion developed for long distances. In 2004 I participated in my first Ultra-Trail which I won in my category. I then contracted the "Ultra Virus" and now, I travel around the world to new playgrounds while organizing workshops to share my passion with other globetrotting runners. Throughout the trail, I enjoy a sense of freedom in being one with nature, and discover new country's with beautiful landscapes and cultures. »
