IFMGA Mountain guide

I’ve skied before i could walk, and once I climbed out of my cradle I never stopped. Since then I gave priority to what really matters to me : family and mountains.

I’ve worked as a climbing teacher since 2004 and got certified as a mountain guide in 2013.

Living in Sweden, in Östersund, I spend a lot of time in the mountains of Jämtland, ski touring, rock or ice climbing, but I also work in the Alps (Maurienne) and in northern Sweden and Norway.

I like to work with a swedish attitude, looking for my own experiences in places far away from the crowds, where it’s still possible to enjoy the nature without any pressure. It was a natural step for me to start working with Upguides, as we share the same values, and the cultural exchanges between french and swedish guides is a huge benefit for all of us, guides and clients.

My best memories ? It could be skiing alone from a 7500m peak, but also a whole week making new tracks in Maurienne with a group that couldn’t believe his eyes… Nowhere else in the Alps can you do that !

I love to spend my time skiing, climbing and exploring in all seasons, from the Maurienne to the remote mountains of the north of Norway.

No matter where we might ski or climb together, I’ll do my best to share that passion with you.
