fields of work
Working on various Project over the years, I learnt that relationships with customers work best when the Traildesigners are fully involved in the Project from the very beginning. Developing a Concept and solid Planning are the most crucial Parts of a successful Project. In the construction phase the Designer is there to make sure the Visions and Ideas get to life and create a Trail with Charakter.

Vision & conception
It all starts with a Vision. But from the first talks to creating plans, getting Permissions, finally start digging to the first ride is a long process that needs a lot of patience, persistence and endurance. We've all been there, and a helping hand from the beginning definitely helps.
Born in 1988, riding Bikes as long as I can remember. My love for Building evolved with my riding, always in need of bigger Jumps for more Airtime we also created bigger and better Jumps. Building and Riding always went Hand in Hand, it was just a natural thing for me to create stuff to ride Bikes, never thinking about it as a job by any means.
It took some time before I realised that it's possible to make a living out of "Trailbuilding" , anyhow I can feed of my experiences I made over the years scrambling through woods looking for Lines and Jumps and transfer and adapt my Knowledge to plan and build Mountainbike Trails for a wider Audience.
