Bio

I’ve quit teaching ski to follow what was at that point my passion; sliding some boxes and metal rails and getting some air on jumps. I spent many years building up my skills on the icy slopes in Quebec and then move down to BC to reach bigger jumps and a longer season. I’ve been competing around Canada in slopestyle, building up some knowledge of self-discipline, workout, and sports psychology.

I’ve coached for Apex équipe sportive back in Quebec and I look forward to transmitting my passion and knowledge here in Whistler.
