I grew up dual nationalit, British and Austrian. Our family home was in Seefeld in Tirol, and as a result of this upbringing I am fluent in English and German, and I started skiing at the age of 3 on my home mountain. I still love to spend my free time skiing at Seefeld, which is one of the best kept secret places for freeriding (but remember “it’s a secret so don’t tell anyone”).
I have been teaching/coaching in Austria for the last 39 years, in this time I have built up considerable experience of Coaching/training at all levels and many nationalities. My teaching experience includes a number of ski schools in Tirol Seefeld, Obergurgl, Kühtai and Hintertux. The Austrian Alpine Ski Academy, Bundessportheim, in St. Christoph am Arlberg is a renowned centre of excellence, where the world class Austrian trainers and racers receive coaching. I am privileged to have trained at the exclusive ski academy Bundessportheim in St. Christoph am Arlberg, and the prestigious Sport University of Innsbruck where I completed the final stage of my Austrian National Coaches License.
I have been working as a personal trainer for the last 10 years in Austria and United Kingdom, during the summer months I work with both young people and adults to develop their over-all fitness and run a program specially targeted at preparing them for the coming ski racing season. Over the last few years I have increased my commitment to coaching high performance skills to both potential ski teachers and young racers from Britain and Austria. I am dedicated to helping you achieve your personal goals. I like to keep up to date with all the modern training and teaching methods, going on regular training to keep myself up to date with modern times and techniques.
If you ask me what is my favourite type of skiing, my answer is “steep and challenging off slope freeriding” and the more of a challenge the better it gets. Put yourself out of your comfort zone and feel the exhilaration. But if you ask me what is my favourite thing about skiing, then my answer is “I love to teach and meet new people whatever their level of skiing. Helping people to have fun on a mountain and for me to be part of the fun is a real privilege”.
