Who?

I think it’s not about who I am, but what I do that makes me.

So what is it that makes me?

Start with that one thing that defined my personal life since the age of 12: Inline Skating

This sport is not just about rolling around, staying healthy and strong.
You set goals, you get in the zone, stay concentrated and most importantly: you need to overcome fear – all this has had a strong impact on my life.

Other than that, Rollerblading has gotten me further around the world than any other thing ever did. New people, cultures and different ways of thinking – these are the points that made me change the way I see the world and its beauty today.
You can get inspired by pretty much everything in this world, may it be something beautiful or even something sad.

If you try to see all the things in life from as many perspectives as possible, the opportunities are endless.

Next thing that came out of this hobby and lifestyle is my passion for film and photography.

As you progress in what you love and you want to show it to the outside world, you need a way to make the people want to see it. In my case, grabbing a camera and „just film/take pictures“ was the best solution.

After getting more and more into filming (getting my own camera, investing in gear, …), I started to notice that this is becoming less of a hobby, but more of a passion – something that I want to do for a living, this is something that keeps amazing me.

The progress of filming, from pre- to post production. Working out a concept, and doing the very best to reach said goals. The reactions of the people I worked with, or the people I worked for.

Trying new things, taking risks, failing and succeeding. All this led me to where I am now: I now live in a small town in Austria called „Feldkirch“, I want to keep on travelling, making exciting content, get to know new people and keep getting inspired. And maybe one day, I will make it to inspire someone else to choose doing what they love and staying humble at it.
