Explorer • Writer • Film-maker
At 19 years old, by accident, I found myself alone in an Australian tropical forest for several days. During this time, I discovered exhaustion and hunger, but most importantly, the wilderness. Since this moment, I have never wanted to leave it and at 21 years old, I decided to become an explorer.
By foot, canoe, horseback, dog sledge, or raft, I spend months alone and living self-sufficiently in the remotest places on the planet. After Iceland and its glaciers; the Gobi Desert and constant thirst; Alaska and its magnificent grizzly bears; I hiked across the Himalayas for four months.
I see exploration as the desire to better understand nature, to inform on its destruction but above all to learn, once again, our place amongst it. A world without the possibility of exploration would be an empty world. Without sense, without life. As long as explorers are able to live their passion, there is still hope.
