Sportler “The best in the Alps”,
I was born in Bolzano, Italy in 1985. I am 29 years-old. I began performing skydiving since the age of 16 years-old. Until now I have performed around 700 skydive jumps.
I began base jumping at the age of 21 years-old. Out of 1700 base jumps performances, the 900 wingsuit jumps were only from mountains. The rest of my base jumps (800) were from Antennas, Buildings, mountains and all the places I could find over 40m height in every discipline: (STATIC JUMP, SLIDER DOWN JUMP, AERIAL JUMP, TRACK JUMP, WINGSUIT JUMP…).

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?
My girlfriend, because she brings me all her support and help every time I need it.
What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?
Somebody told me once: “the good basejumper gets old”.
