Born and raised in the south of France, Mathieu is now a Canadian resident living in Montreal. He is an engineer who is passionate about activities in nature, adventures and big challenges. After several years of exploring the oceans as a diving instructor and enjoying the adrenaline rush from many sports like BMX, snowboarding and kite surfing, Mathieu got into running in 2014, shortly after settling in Quebec. In 2016, he discovered another passion for trail running and was instantly hooked. He was selected to participate in the Salomon Ultra Running Academy in March 2017, and took this opportunity to specialize in Ultra Trail. Determined, passionate and overflowing with energy, scuba diving and trail-running have broadened his horizons, allowing him to flourish in an authentic community and pushing him to question humans’ relationship with nature… He loves sharing his passions through stories about adventures and races, scuba-diving reports, as well as through photos, advice, conferences and coaching. He loves connecting to nature, from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the mountains.
