    Mini Bio

    When I was a child, I spent most of my summer holidays exploring the Italian Alps with my family. As I grew up, it was inevitable for me to follow my parents’ passion and start searching for my own mountain adventures. This search brought me all over Europe until I discovered Scotland. The Highlands are a magic place, where culture and traditions mix with the environment, offering the perfect opportunity to discover amazing places. I love to show this to people with my work and to share it with friends in my everyday life.

    I now spend most of my time in the Alps, but I’m always happy to come back to Scotland for a few months of the year to visit some of my favourite places and discover new ones.

    Place to Play

    I love the Scottish islands, particularly that combination of steep mountains and stunning coastline. It’s a unique environment, very difficult to find anywhere else in the world. Outside of Scotland, I love to spend my time amongst some of the highest and most iconic peaks of the Alps.

    Not a lot of people know this

    English is actually not my first language. Can you guess where I’m from?

    I became a Mountain Leader in 2017 and since then I’ve been enjoying working in different
    areas of the UK, mainly Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands. In 2020 I then gained my
    International Mountain Leader qualification and moved back to the Alps, where the
    majority of my work is now. I have experience working with children and teenagers on
    Duke of Edinburgh and international expeditions, but also with adults on multi-day treks
    in many different environments.
