About me

Over the years, I’ve done many different (and life-teaching) jobs … from a banker, clerk, nightclub- & eventmanager, […] to a nightauditor, biketrailbuilder, skiinstructor and bikeguide … Said so, I appreciate most of all “not” working for money, but just being out there in the nature – learning new (survival) skills, doing a lot of outdoor sports (to play) and feeling alive…

I dedicate my working-time in the last couple years to quality more than to quantity. While I accomplished different professional trainings for the last few years, such as methodical instructing, outdoor-guiding, navigation, first-aid, search & rescue, wildlifecourses etc. I’m capable to connect many different skills and use the synergy  out of my experiences. I got swiss-canadian citizenship, which enables me to spend a lot of my time in Switzerland or in British Columbia. No matter what I do, my biggest goal is to adapt all my doing to a sustainable and environmentally respectful way.


 Interview

  • What is your biggest accomplished dare? 
    To let go from the big illusion (matrix) and to follow my own dreams. I had to learn to question my education of the present dysfunctional economic-model (capitalism, consumption, egoism) and stay faithful in my own positive values.
  • Whom would you like to give props?
    My mentors, parents and friends… as well as everyone out there, trying to make this planet a better place…
  • When and where do you get caught while zapping?
    I don’t watch TV.  Though I appreciate a good movie or documentation on demand from time to time…
  • If so, where would you settle down?
    In a forest, a cabin, on a alp, a little lake.. somewhere off the grid in a community of similar minded people looking after each other…
  • What are the cornerstones of your guiding and instructing?
    The Art of Mentoring is my cornerstone in anything concerning knowledge and teaching.

All.I.Can

At an average year, I’ll spend more than +200days privately or working somewhere on a mountain. The alpine terrain is my home, the nature is my inspiration and my outdoor activities are my way of experiencing and reconnecting to the nature…
