Professional  Skier

 

THAT'S ME ...

... a professional & passionated cross country skier from the German Alps. My goal is to race at the World Championships. My path there is a bit different.

Sometimes you realize something quite late, although it has been anchored in your heart for many years. That is exactly how my goal of becoming a world-class skier developed. After successfully returning from a two year skiing scholarship in Alaska, I was closer to my childhood dream than ever. However, with a MBA degree in my pocket it also seemed logical to stop racing and pursue a "true" job career. I'm honestly not a "compromise person" - but in this case I just could not get rid of the idea to combine a job with an athletic career.


Last year I skied my first real World Cup season and was nominated for the German national ski team in spring 2019. Yet, I work part-time for ABUS in the cycling industry and train the most professional I can. My job is not only a job, it also provides me with interesting challenges beyond the athletics. The same way I love ski racing, I do love cycling and I try to approach my work as passionate as I do my daily training sessions.

It's my #focus week ... actually not whi

Packline roof boxes are the perfect combination of form and function. Packline can increase the luggage space of all vehicles without significantly changing the shape and function of the car. And it will make your travel experience much more enjoyable. I am importing Packline products to the Alps since 2015 and sell them through my webshop to active people like me. Packline is not only a business partner but also an important supporter of my athletic journey.
