I’ve been living in Innsbruck, Austria since I was born in 1997. At the moment I work as a paramedic and I am hoping to move to Switzerland.
What do you like about BLUE ICE philosophy
What I like most about BLUE ICE is the simplicity of the products. All of them are smart and efficient and perfect for the needs of an alpinist. Beside them BLUE ICE cares about the environment, which is something very important for me to.

Your favourite BLUE ICE product
Your dream route
Does not exist at the moment, because I will be the first one who climbs it. But it is going to be on high altitude, with a lot of mixed terrain and first climbed in alpine style!
A climber who inspired you
Hermann Buhl. Even today he would be one of the strongest alpinist on the planet.
