I grew up in Kiel, Northern Germany with an older brother, mostly being lost somewhere on our outdoor adventures. I started swimming at the age of 6, but didn’t even think about triathlon for quite a while. My journey started with a local triathlon at the age of 22. In 2017, I completed my first Ironman (Wales) and qualified for Kona 2018.
Now, I am living my dream.

Before going pro in ’21, I acquired a Master degree in Mechanical Engineering (specialized in Aerodynamics) and moved to Berlin. Apart from that, I am a coffee lover and doggo daddy, make the best pizza outside of Italy and my hair gives you a hint for my taste of music. 😉
