The dual capability of doctor and guide is an asset and has led him to participate in many rescue missions in the Alps or the Himalayas. In addition, he participated in guide training schemes in Nepal, and shooting adventure films. Recently he discovered caving. Now he is also looking to explore the glacial mills. Expeditions he will lead in the coming years will mainly be a mix of sea and mountain experience and resolutely turned towards the poles.
