Born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, Lionel started travelling as soon as he could. Being a carpenter, he first joined a development project by helping building a covered market in Cameroun and never stopped travelling since then. He travelled across Patagonia, Switzerland and Laos by bike, visited South and Central America, Europe, Asia and Africa, and even worked as a carpenter in Peru. Discovering new places and people always inspires him to create, above all because his pictures, videos, music and woodworking enables him to share the beauty of nature... and that's how Montaneha came to light !
