World war II and Battle of the bulge are a life-long passion for me. During my battlefields tours, I am glad to share my knowledge and enthusiasm and also to make discover my native region through his history.

I am working since 18 years as a chemist in the brewing industry, and since 2016 I am a battlefield guide with my private company guideardenne44.com.
My interest for the Battle of the Bulge comes from my family history, as my parents were aged 10 and 6 years and lived in the Saint-Vith area in December 1944. I grew up in a region still full of remains and scars of the battle, with every person having lived that period having histories to tell about.
After years of readings, numerous visits of museums and places of European memory, I decides to become an battlefield guide.. I have a deep knowledge about the battle of the bulge, Allied and German equipment and vehicles, but also about the world 20th century history as well as of the Ardennes physical and human geography. With a group of fellows local battlefields guides and historians, we are continuously improving our knowledge, exploring new places and sharing documents.
I offer mainly tours for small groups and individuals, but also guide for travel agencies and larger groups. My particular domains of expertise are Bastogne, the Houffalize/Vielsalm/Saint-Vith area, the Kampfgruppe Peiper and 82nd airborne history. On request, I also prepare tailored tours following a particular unit, or retracing a soldier’s history.
I am an official guide for the city of Bastogne tourism office, a guide for the visit of the WHI Bastogne Barracks site and I am registered as “Guide local Bataille des Ardennes” by the Commissariat Général du Tourisme de la Région Wallonne de Belgique, brevet GL336.
