I grew up in Austria, and split my time between Norway and Georgia (Caucasus). I am certified as ski guide by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) and also hold Canadian Avalanche Association Level 3 certification. Currently based in Trondheim, where I pursue a PhD degree at NTNU, Faculty of Architectue and Technology, researching urban mobility and greenhouse gas emissions. I am also working on a second PhD in snow and avalanche sciences at BOKU Vienna. 

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, Caucasus) SE couloir (1800m, 45-60°) or the first ski descent of Pik Pobeda East Summit (6762m, Tien Shan). I also laid tracks on several steep lines in Northern Norway.  
Nowadays I prefer to guide people into gentler, but nevertheless stunning mountain areas, and I enjoy to see and rediscover the beauty of the mountains with my guests. Above all...I love skiing. 
I am also also a passionate photographer - feel free to have a look at my portfolio and photo stories at >>PS-Photo
