He was best known as a ski commentator, specialising in women's Alpine skiing, but he also covered other sports, notably last year's American Super Bowl. He began his career at the daily newspaper La Suisse in 1984, moving to RTS in 1989.

Paying tribute to him on an Ecolint Facebook group, former classmates referred to his fondness for pinball and cards at the Aube. He also played drums with a local Chêne-Bourg band.
