I grew up in the Bernese Alps. Me, my familiy and another 100.000 people live in Winterthur, the sixth biggest city of Switzerland. Therefore our country is rather small but beautiful!

I'm working as an meteorological assistant at the official weather service MeteoSwiss at Zurich airport forecasting general and aviation weather.

I've been passioned about weather since my childhood - especially severe weather, like mediterranean lightningstorms, which I regularly try to chase and photograph in autumn in Sardinia. By the way, Sardinia has some of the nicest beaches in the whole Mediterranean.

Winterstorms are another kind of favourite weather of mine - but they don't like them too much at the airport!

My family try it's best to live with someone who rushes outdoors while everyone else is trying to rush indoors.
