ATHLETE INFORMATION

Born in Kuchl by Salzburg, Austria
Professional Freeskier
Ski Film Producer
Sports journalist

"I am a professional freeskier born and living in the Austrian Alps. Since I'm 3 years old I ski every possible day. Skiing is my biggest passion. For many years I was a part of the Austrian Ski Team. When I was 18 I competed my first World Cup Race in St. Anton/Arlberg. Affected by many injuries I had to stop racing when I was 23. One door closed but the other opened. I did an education as a sports journalist and worked as a TV editor. After I started with Freeriding and within a very short time I won my first competitions and qualified for the Freeride World Tour. Since 2010 I am a part of the World Tour Family. Accompanied by ups and downs - BUT, the ups are not that great without the downs ;)"
