Your canyoning and paragliding guide in the alpes-maritimes
With an atypical background, Pierrot has been immersed in sport, nature and creativity since a very young age. Originally from the flat country, he devoted himself to all the activities he could have met (hand-ball, football, swimming, circus art…) At 17 years old he became a trainer for a football team and an entertainer in summer camp. Then after a classical academic background and a DUT in Mechanical Engineering, he entered the National Institute of Circus Acrobatics for 3 years. He then divides his time between Le Puy du Fou as an acrobat stuntman and the Zip-Zap circus school in South Africa where he teaches circus arts. It is during a return to France in the Vosges mountains that he discovered paragliding, followed by climbing and canyoning in Annecy.
A true adventurer, strong sensations and nature lover, he then decided to travel with his paraglide (Nepal, India, Morocco, Europe, South Africa…) Always in search of sharing and action, in 2015 Pierrot challenged himself, and decided to obtain two DEJEPS with Canyoning and Paragliding. It is by founding Ailéments that his life project is formed: to live from his passion. A character with contagious energy shaped by travels and encounters!
