Athlete Bio

My country is flat and I am 100% Belgian. How could I be home when there are so many beautiful places to explore on earth? For the passed 4 years I haven't had a home. I am just travelling targeting climbing destinations. I am doing what love and committed everything to be able to live fully my passion for rock-climbing. Whether it's a one move boulder problem or a big wall in alpine environment it's the same. It's rock and I love it all.

How did you get started climbing?

In April 1980 I was already slapping slopers mantling out my mom's belly. 

How old were you when you started?

I was 15. The school system was on strike so I got my first gym pass and made it quite profitable! 

Who or what inspired you to start climbing?

Santa clause because he is so good at chimneys and hauling bags.

 Who served as your inspiration in life?

 Waldo... Because he is everywhere! But hard to find.

 What was your first outdoor climb?

Some deep water soloing off the coast of Corsica Island.

 Any training advice or suggestions? 

Forget about training! Just go climb and have fun and you'll get strong. 

If you could have 1 superpower what would it be? 

Be able to transform houses into boulders. 

If you could have 3 wishes, what would they be? (no wishing for more wishes) 

- Everybody to be happy

- More rock on the earth

- and to be climbing right now instead of being in front of a computer screen

 What was your favorite childhood cartoon? 

I had no TV during my childhood.
