I was born in Hall in Tirol and live since then in Zillertal, the widest side valley in Tirol. As I grew up in a Hotel Business I have always seen tourismus from very close. That’s why I decided to sign up for the school of tourism in Zell am Ziller. After finishing my study, I did my 6 months military service and then decided to commit to a foreign assignment. Back from the mission, I lived up to the typical cliché of a Tyrolean and worked as a ski instructor in the morning and stood behind the bar in our hotel in the evening. Now I've swapped my skis for 2 wheels and look forward to a new chapter in my life ... The passion for motorcycling I most likely got from my dad. Starting with 6 years I was put on a Yamaha PW80 and was immediately infected with the virus of motorcycling. As a result, I gained a lot of experience in the offroad area over the years until finally, at the age of 16, I was allowed to take my driving license for the road. On the road I collected my kilometers with a KTM Duke 125, a Yamaha MT07 and currently with a BMW R1200 GS LC.
