BIO

An inner drive to create and share his passion develloped into photography and film making. Considered by many to be one of the most creative film maker in skydiving, he is the founder of the production company Satori Factory and has collaborated with several word class athletes to create web and TV contents on both side of the lens.

Alex is an awarded film maker and a multidisciplinary performer. He signed his first sponsoring contract in 2006 as professional acrobatic paragliding pilot after being one of the first to perform the infinity tumbling, the most iconic manoeuvre in the sport.

Being full time professional acrobatic pilot wasn't enough to satisfy Alex which lead him to explore other flying sport such as BASE jumping and skydiving. He is the only athlete to make podium in world class competition for both paragliding and indoor skydiving.

He was also co founder of the D4W  tunnel competition, the concept adopted today by the FAI for the

indoor world championship.

Today he is part of the Squirrel Factory Team, arguably the most successful wingsuit brand on the

market and use his spare time to develop himself in a broad range of outdoor activity mostly as a tool

of self development.
