I am originally from Germany, but grew up in Austria, and now live in Norway and Georgia.
I am an apprentice ski guide, avalanche technician and PhD student in snow/avalanches sciences. I have been working for many years as avalanche technician (avalanche safety consulting and forecasting), avalanche course instructor and ski guide in Norway and Georgia, but also Canada and Japan. Certifications include Apprentice Ski Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, Canadian Avalanche Association Level 3 & Wilderness First Responder.
In the past I have been a professional/sponsored ski-alpinist, with several first ski descents on 5000-6000m summits in the Caucasus, Andes, Tien Shan and Pamirs. Among them are the first ski descents of Shkhara (5193m, highest peak of Georgia), Mkinvartveri/Kazbek (5047m, Caucasus) SE + NE face, Chatyn-Tau W (4310m) SE couloir (1900m, 60°) or the first ski descent of Pik Pobeda East Summit (6762m, Tien Shan).
Nowadays I prefer to ski guide people into more gentle, but nevertheless stunning mountain areas, and I enjoy to see and rediscover the beauty of the mountains with my guests. Above all, I just love skiing.
I am also a passionatephotographer - feel free to have a look at my portfolio and photo stories at PS-Photo.
