I grew up in a multilingual family with British and Austrian nationality and therefore speak fluent English and German. My hometown is Seefeld in Tyrol, where I started skiing at the age of 3 on my local mountain. In my free time, I still enjoy skiing in Seefeld, one of the best-kept secret spots for freeriding (but remember: “It’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone”).
I have been working in the Austrian ski industry, teaching, coaching and training since my early teens and have gained considerable experience working with many nationalities at all levels in several renowned Austrian ski resorts.
I have also been through exams in Europe reaching the top level in Austria, Switzerland and United kingdom. I have also been training FIS / European cup skiers for a number of years and I also hold a ÖSV – (Austrian Ski Association) Trainers Licensed. I understand the discipline and work needed to achieve the toughest goals and the structured training it takes to achieve these goals in the racing world or to pass the high standards of a technical instructor exam.
My success in the world of skiing is largely based on the pursuit of excellence, helping skiers, regardless of their level or standard, develop their technical skills by understanding what they really need as opposed to what they think they want. In particular, this includes understanding your personal goals and individual learning styles and focusing on the outcome/success rather than obstacles/difficulties.
