I started with kayak slalom like most of the kayakers from Meran. But with time, the gates became to small and I focused on whitewater kayaking. I have always liked competing and therefore, after some achievements in kayak slalom (3 times U21 Italian champion with the slalom team), i came to whitewater races. In the past years i travelled a lot (Mexico, New Zealand and everywhere around Europe), gave clinics for the kayak club in Meran and worked as a raft guide on the Etsch river. Now I live in Innsbruck and turned my hobby into a mission. I love and live this sport, which is now also work for me as a kayak teacher. When the rivers are to low, i go back-country skiing or climbing. Alongside i study mikrobiology in Innsbruck.
