As a kid I grew up next to the majestic volcanoes and lakes of southern Chile. When I became an alpinist, I started climbing the big mountains of the Maipo Valley and that soon took me to climb in the Alps.

With my wife, dogs and son we live in Austria and in Chile, sharing life in two different places, but in the same way.

Since the year 2009, I'm guiding mostly the volcanoes of southern Chile and, when possible, the big mountains around Santiago and the Atacama desert.

I'm a member of the Chilean Mountain Guide Association (www.angm.cl), with whom we are working to bring the IFMGA standard to Chile, not only to validate our profession, but also to start teaching future mountain guides in Chile.

I work with a team of guides in the Puerto Varas area, so when I'm in Austria, I can arrange for you to climb with one of my colleagues.

Best experience we could have asked for. I'm so happy we hired a guide for this. Their knowledge, expertise, and personality made the trip amazing. The climb is well worth the effort and I highly recommend.
