Welcome to my web site. Thank you for stopping by, paging through, and taking time to enjoy my work. I hope you’ll be back. Check out my blog for the latest, and for some archived images and personal adventures.
This has shaped me:
Born and raised in the small village of Flinsbach, Austria. Climbing in Austria draws me again and again to the Dachstein.
Graduate of culinary school in Austria. One of my favorite simple dishes is Kaiserschmarrn. Ask me to make you one, you won't regret it.
IFMGA Mountain Guide - In 2001 I completed my International Mountain Guide certification.
Places I keep returning to: the Dolomites, detailed limestone faces, larches and alpine meadows; the High Sierra wilderness, bright granite, foxtail and ponderosa; Yosemite, limitless boulders, endless walls; the ocean, kelp forest and coastal zone.
A few years ago I became a father. That now tops my identity as family man, climber, and photographer.
