Born in the USA, raised in Switzerland, originally Austrian, and graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations, I try to live out my passion for wilderness, adventure, and an active and healthy lifestyle as best as I can.
You’ll find me mostly in British Columbia’s Interior region, where I’ve established Rossland as my base camp from which to explore nature’s fantastic playground on lugged soles, knobby tires, or waxed pairs of planks.
I am fascinated by Mother Nature, especially her mountains, and by the incredible performance of the human body as it runs, flows and moves through her landscapes. Through my own pursuit of and dedication to movement out on the trails, I get to experience what we are capable of first-hand, be it running, biking, scrambling, or skiing.
I’ve got adventures on my mind, scars on my shins, and many miles on my shoes. The summer of 2017, more than ever before, I have pushed beyond my comfort zone in ways I didn’t think possible. Sure enough, I ended up completing two trail ultramarathons – instead of just one as I had initially planned. Although 2018 was a little slower as I found myself slightly sidelined due to injury, I cannot wait to build on this solid foundation and hope for an even more incredible 2019.
Constantly plotting new missions, I’ve got plenty to look forward to. I am about to embark on a new chapter in my journey. It’ll be a brand new and exciting story of rediscovering the old and known through child-like eyes full of wonder and excitement. Stay tuned for more…
