Since my father is a mountain guide I was sort of born with interest in mountaineering, so I started very early with hiking and climbing. At the age of 7 I reached the peak of Grossglockner the first time following my fathers lead. After intense climbing in youth and young manhood I decided at the age of 18 to take part in the education for professional mountain guiding. Since passing the first semester in August 2002 I am working as a full time professional guide. I am doing my job in summer and winter all over the alps. Additionally to the fact that my job is my passion, I can combine this activities perfectly with my hobby which is photography.
