My Story

My family home is in Seefeld in Tirol where I started skiing at the age of 3, on my home mountain.  I still love to spend my free time skiing at Seefeld, which is one of the best kept secret places for freeriding (but remember it’s a secret so don’t tell anyone!).

I have been working in the ski industry in Austria for the last 40 years and have built up considerable experience of coaching/training in several prestigious Austrian resorts with many nationalities at all levels. In the low season, I am a personal trainer in Austria and United Kingdom, working with young people and adults to develop their overall fitness. I also love mountain biking and travelling to different places (Base Camp Mount Everest, Africa Namibia).

If you ask me what is my favourite type of skiing, my answer is “steep and challenging off-piste freeriding”; the more of a challenge the better it gets.  Put yourself out of your comfort zone and feel the exhilaration.  But if you ask me what is my favourite thing about skiing, then my answer is “I love to teach and meet new people whatever their level of skiing.  Helping people to have fun on a mountain is a real privilege”. In more recent years, I have increased my commitment to coaching high-performance skills to both potential ski teachers and junior racers. I am dedicated to helping you achieve your personal goals.

I grew up multi-lingual dual nationality British and Austrian, so I am fluent in English and German.
