“ Sometimes you have to look at life from a different angle ”

Can you tell us about your job?

" A passion-filled job !!!!! My job is like a magician “ I transform your ideas into reality” : “poof , a tent”.

But, more seriously: I work with designers, engineers and product managers. We determine together the design brief for the new tent we are going to create. I create the structure and take measurements to construct an initial 3D “skin”. With that, I determine the templates and the different sewing assemblies.

Then, I can start to cut out the template and begin assembling with a sewing machine to create the first prototype. It gives the teams concrete ideas to move towards the best solution. "

What do you like about hiking?

" What I love about hiking in the mountains is being alone with yourself and also the effort you make to see the view. Also, being united again with nature. "
