BIO


I was born in Munich, and grew up little bid south of Munich. I came late to that sport, at the age of 15. My parents always travelled with us, my brother and me, to the Austrian alps, that’s may be the reason where my love to the Mountains came from. At the age of 15 I joined the German Alpine Club. Immediately I started to climb and could travel to far places like Turkey. I ex-plored my love to climbing and travelling then. Till today, nothing has changed. I love to travel and love to climb whenever, wher-ever in the world. I love being in the Mountains, in Winter or Summer, and at it’s best together with my Family.

Activities practiced:
Love every action in the mountains. My favourites are climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering. Why it came to my passion … that was pure luck … Today I’am a mountain Guide and travelled most of the beautiful places for climbing and mountaineering in the world, very often together with my family, couldn’t be any better, to me.

Hobbies:
What do you mean with freetime? ;-) I love Surfing too, but I surf like netherlands ski. I have nothing angainst netherlander, but most of them can’t ski. ;-)

Favourite Place:
Chamonix, Ceüse, Wendenstöcke, Schüsselkar, Kochel, Dolo-mites, Patagonia, … too many cool palces all over the world!!!

Favourite Book:
PUSH, Tommy Caldwell. Great story, very great and inspiring climber

Biggest Fear:
The sky falls on my head ;-)

 

PROJECTS


Endless in my head, too much too accomplish. Some I did so far, K2 or the first onsight ascent of Flying Circus are my biggest ascents. Climbing Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy with a client, are my biggest successes as a guide.
