I started skiing since I was 2 years and by 14 years old decided to try snowboarding while I was in Soll, Austria and fell in love with it. Due to university and building my business, I took a long break and finally came back to the sport in 2011 where I started going to Niseko. Ever since then I make sure I go twice a year for at least 4 weeks per year of snowboarding time. Decided to take the instructor course in 2015 and have completed the Riding element of Level 2 CASI snowboard instructor. Aiming to complete the Teaching element in 2017/2018 winter season

Level 2 CASI Snowboard Instructor

Experience:

When I was 19, I skied for the first time in Whistler. Every year after that, I was making annual "pilgrim(s)" but it wasn't enough and I was always envious of the people who are able to spend the whole season snowboarding.
At 32, I decided to live the dream once; quit my job, got my CASI level 2 and worked as a part-time snowboard instructor in Niseko Village during the 11-12 winter season.

CSIA Level 1 ski instructor

Experience

It was back in 2000 on a highly intoxicated evening while living in UK when I first got on a snowboard as a forfeit for losing a bet. This strange experience of strapping both feet to a board and sliding down a slope on literally breakneck speed turns out to be the catalyst of my powder addiction. Coaching certifications on both ski and snowboard in 2005 firmly forged my lifelong addiction to a lifestyle sports most of my peers in the tropics can’t relate to. Had been pursuing the illusive white powder from up market Canada to outback China and down under Australia but nothing beats Japan for value and variety. Most snowsports enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice from Honshu to Hokkaido with personal favorites of Nozawa Onsen, Shiga Kogen and Niseko. Though I’m way passed my shelf life as a professional athlete, I’ve always been fantasizing flying the Singapore flag in a Boardercross.event. Am hopeful that what we do in Urban Ski provides the platform for some aspiring Singaporeans to live their dreams in the Winter Olympics.
