Since he was a kid, he loved it to snorkel or just to keep his head under water while holding his breath to look at the sea life.

Sport always played an important part in his life. He won countless competitions in athletics and became Berlin Indoor Champion when he was a teenager.

He made many trips to the sea for snorkeling and scuba diving and began freediving in 2006, this sport captivated him straight away. He had the immediate luck from the start to train with successful and experienced freedivers, such as Jens Berger and Wolfram Neugebauer, where he learnt a great deal.

Since 2007 he worked as a safety diver and coach in many national and international competitions.

In 2010 he became an AIDA instructor and since 2013 he is instructor trainer for Pure Apnea where he is running courses of all levels.

He is an international competition Judge for Pure Apnea and AIDA.

My philosophy :

I am not a freediving factory and not interested to certify as much as possible. I hold things on a small scope and go in this point a different way than my colleagues. This is the only way I can ensure that I never lose the pleasure in what once started as a hobby. The classes take place only with a maximum of two people at the same time to ensure you get my full attention!

Success in deep diving :

  • 2012 – 15th best performance in competition world ranking with 58m without fins
  • 2012 – 12th best performance in competition world ranking in all 3 depth disciplines together
