I am a passionate wingsuit pilot and professional cyber security consultant. 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 thereafter. Totally hooked on the freedom and the aerodynamic intimacy of free fall I soon got into wingsuit flying and BASE jumping. Ten years later I have accumulated close to 2000 jumps and over 800 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.
Wingsuit flying has taught me a great deal about determination, risk management, myself and individual responsibility - while I also made good use of my scientific background, analytical skills and work experience. Check out ways of working with me.
I graduated from ETH Zurich - amongst worldwide top 10 universities - with a master's degree in Management, Technology and Economics, with specialization in innovation management, IT security and IT risk management.
I have seven years experience in cyber security and risk management from different perspectives and both technical and managerial roles. I have dealt with cyber risks as an IT security engineer and project manager, lead a team of eight IT security experts, and worked as a product manager of a complex enterprise cyber risk solution provided by United Security Providers. Currently I am working as a self-employed cyber security consultant.
My experience in wingsuit flying has given me a competitive advantage in my professional career: treating risk management as an integral part of any new venture, keeping a cool head, maintaining a bird's eye view and accepting and managing residual risk.
