I was born on March 5, 1991 in Linz. Ever since I was an enthusiastic football player. Until the day I began ski jumping. Since then I remained true to ski jumping and today I am a professional.
In 1997 I started my education at the primary school in Kirchberg-Thenig that is also my hometown. Afterwards I changed to the gymnasium in Linz which was a good decision, because afterwards I had no learning problems at the Ski gymnasium in Stams.
2010 I finished my Matura with excellence and from July 2010 I was an army athlete for a few years.
