Briefly describe yourself …
Most of the time I live the life of a professional snowboarder, spend a lot of time on the beautiful mountains or travel around. When I’m at home I work sometimes for a health insurance company to get some extra money which pays for my surf journeys to Indonesia. I like most to be out in nature and I also love good food, Yoga and partying with my friends.

Talk us through your average day…
Wake up early, do some Yoga, eat a good breakfast and spent the day on the mountain, hopefully with some fresh powder :-)! Do some stretching, take a hot shower or even better a bubble bath, cook something yammy and eat it together with friends and a good glass of red wine. Chill at home or go out for a good night drink.
