I was born on 13 of May in 1993 in my hometown Schwarzach. Since I was a little boy I was enthusiastic at sports.
Therefore I began to play football at the age of four and a short time later I was a member of Skiing club Großarl.

The interest in ski jumping came with my best friend Christian Reiter. I was watching his competition every time. But watching was not my satisfaction, so I was standing on the hill a few days later.
From that day on I couldn’t get enough and only a little time later I became member of the Landesskiverband Salzburg.
I decided to attend the sport middle school in Bischofshofen, so I can do more sports and not only in free time.

After finishing the middle school it was no hard decision to change tot he ski gymnasium in Stams because so did all my Austrian ski jumping idols.

Together with the SLSV I worked hard to pass the qualifying examination. In the meantime I achieved my Matura and I am an army athletes.
The army sport offers a great opportunity to develop myself in a sportive and personal way without having school in my mind. Therefore I am looking forward to this new challenge.
