1200 hours of flight
I have started paragliding in September of 2014. From the moment of my very first flight I knew that this would become more than a hobby and turn into my passion.Since then I have dedicated my whole life to paragliding and have accumulated 1850 flights and 1200 hours in little over 4.5 years. I have participated in various competitions and flew in countries like Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Turkey, India, Austria, Nepal, Thailand, France, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Spain and Denmark. I take great pleasure in sharing my passion with other people as passengers and love to go flying with them. Ich was born in July 1984 in Zermatt, my family has been here for many generations, therefore I have great knowledge of the local culture and nature. Traveling is a very important part of my life and I have travelled to 58 countries so far. I speak German, French, English and Spanish fluently.

2000 hours of flight
I have started paragliding in 1999. After a few years of paragliding, my great passion to travel or cycling around the world, explore and climb mountains has become a new dimension and lifestyle. Climbing mountains and fly down is one of the most satisfying adventure for me and after moving to Zermatt some years ago, I could climb also the snow peaks around Zermatt with my girlfriend on the tandem-glider. Travelled all over the world, from NewYork, Rio to Tokyo during my work I could fly my wing „on and off duty“ in many countries. (Japan, India …, Brazil, Chile …, California, Iran, Ethiopia, Kenia…, just to name a few) Today 16’500hrs in the air, plus some more not counted on the paraglider ;-)
