In my world, there is no such thing as an impossible angle.

It’s just a matter of how far you are willing to go to get it.

 

This is the very mindset that has taken me worldwide on my mission to turn unthinkable footage into unbelievable content.

Adventures and adrenaline have always been a part of my life. Filming, on the other hand, hasn’t.

As a lifelong skier and climber, I’ve seen and known what true adrenaline feels like, what real danger does to your mind and what the consequences look like.

My passion lies within extracting the authenticity of true adrenaline, hazards, and outdoorsmanship.

With my personal experience, I know what will happen at any given moment. But most importantly, I know what is required to get the perfect shot.

The importance of staying in shape can’t be stressed enough in my line of work. I travel with the best athletes in the world.

It can be dangerous and potentially life-threatening. If my body and mind aren’t in shape, not only will the cinematography lack in quality, but the consequences can be a lot worse than that.

 

As an 8a+ climber and experienced skier, I hone my skills daily to always be ready for the next adventure.

To cut it short: I need to push myself daily in order to feel comfortable when it really matters.

This is what I live and breathe for—a life of adventure.
And I want people to know what it’s like.

I want people to feel the rush, sense the danger, and see the awesomeness in what it means to be in the most remote places in the world.

If I can achieve that, if I can inspire my viewers to turn unthinkable ideas into unbelievable and unforgettable moments, then my goal is reached.
