Introduction


I had my first tandemflight in 1997 in Austria. After that i have been dreaming about flying without having the opportunity to realize my dream. Until 2013, when i read in a magazine how easy it was to take a course. That’s what I did and I realized soon that this is my true passion, after my kids and wife of course.

In 2015 I got the opportunity to make a living of paragliding. The school where I was working wanted me to be a paragliding teacher and other extreme sports in Norway with paragliding trips to the Caribbean. Since that time my working days are defined by the weather, as well as my time off. 

I love to fly tandem with my kids and learning paragliding to others, but my true passion lies in hike and fly and vol-biv. I just love to push my body to the limit, knowing that I can fly down as a reward. In the area where I live there are plenty of mountain peaks which have never been flown before so I have a lot to do!
