Ich bin 1991 in der Oberpfalz und somit im Flachland von Deutschland geboren. Durch meinen Vater, welcher begeisterter Drachen- und mittlerweile auch Gleitschirmflieger ist, bin ich bereits mit der leichten Fliegerei aufgewachsen. Dabei begann alles mit Modellsegelfliegen und Groundhandling mit dem Gleitschirm. Seit 2005 fliege ich Gleitschirm (Hang und Winde) und genieße jede einzelne Facette dieses tollen Luftsports. Nach meinem Abitur zog ich nach Österreich und begann dort ab 2009 als Fluglehrer zu arbeiten. Neben meinem Tourismusstudium in Innsbruck, welches ich 2015 abschloss, arbeitete ich für mehrere Flugschulen als Sicherheitstrainer. Bis heute leite ich etwa 10-14 Sicherheitstrainings pro Jahr. Seit 2013 arbeite ich fest beim DHV als praktischer Fluglehrerausbilder und technischer Prüfer. 
Nebenbei trete ich seit 2010 im Gleitschirm Akrobatik Weltcup an und konnte dort 2015 und 2016 meine besten Wettkampfsaisonen mit einer Top 10 Platzierung im Gesamtergebnis feiern. Des Weiteren fliege ich begeistert Strecke, Speedflyer und im Herbst gehe ich gerne auf eine gemütliche Hike & Fly Tour. Wenn es mal nicht zum Fliegen geht, verbringe ich am liebsten meine Zeit auf den Skiern oder im Sommer auf meinem Moutainbike.
