I started my studies (physical education) at Innsbruck in 2004 where I still live and ski. I graduated as a bachelor of science in health and competitive sports in summer 2008. I started skiing very early as my parents are both qualified ski instructors and very soon got into alpine ski racing. I continued ski racing until the age of 17, winning the German Junior Championships in slalom in 2003. At the age of 17, I decided to leave the gates behind and do what I love best: freeriding. Besides my studies in Innsbruck I got into slopestyle skiing as well and I built up my career as a professional freeskier.I competed in the X Games and Nine Queens. I got several parts in big European Freeskimovies, for example in Aestivation. Then two severe knee injuries forced me to give up my Olympic dream and focus again on what I really love about skiing. Riding powder and explore the mountains. But also this dream kept me going and train really hard to get back in shape with my knee so I can be happy to say that I am strong and fit again for what I love. When I am not skiing I love to surf. I spend as much time as possible at the sea and I think that it is a great compliment to being in the mountians.

Goals

My goal is always to explore more. I wanna get to know the mountains better and especially explore new places in the alps and also around the world. Skiing in a new resort, going on touring missions, and the main goal is always to stay safe and educated in the mountain environment and safety.

Why Ortovox?

I ride for Ortovox because I really stand behind the products. It gives me the right equipment for my passion and I can trust in the product and focus on the mountain.

Favorite Summit

Every summit.

Best Descent

I think it was the traverse I did in my recent movie WAY EAST in Japan. We hiked from Niseko to the Ocean over the Anapuri mountain range over 11 peaks in 4 days.

Safety Tip

Know all your equipment and know weather and snow conditions! Be aware of the risks you take!
