I am a passionate wingsuit pilot and cyber security professional. I am Swiss, was born in 1983 and live in Switzerland.
In wingsuit flying I have found the purest and most rewarding human flight experience I can imagine - and I have seen many forms: airplane piloting, paragliding, skydiving and BASE jumping.
I started skydiving in 2005 and served in the Parachute Reconnaissance Company 17. Totally hooked on the freedom and the aerodynamic intimacy of free fall I soon got into wingsuit flying and BASE jumping. 15 years later I have accumulated more than 2000 jumps and over 900 wingsuit flights.
I tested the limits during the booming years of wingsuit proximity flying and I landed on the podium of wingsuit races a few times. Nowadays I mostly enjoy looking for new mountains to fly off, combining flying with alpinism and working with film crews to bring my passion to the big screen.
Years in extreme sports has provided some valuable education with regards to determination, risk management, myself and individual responsibility. Check out ways of working with me.
I graduated from ETH Zurich with a master's degree in Management, Technology and Economics, with specializations in innovation management, IT security and IT risk management.
I have ten years of experience in cyber security and risk management from different perspectives and both technical and managerial roles. I am working as a Technical Program Manager for Google's Threat Analysis Group, which tracks actors involved in disinformation campaigns, government backed hacking, and financially motivated abuse.
My experience in extreme sports has taught me a great deal about human risk management and has been quite beneficial in my work life, such as: treating risk management as an integral part of any new venture, keeping a cool head when things go south, maintaining a bird's eye view, and managing residual risk.
