Andreas was born in Saxony and is a graduate sports scientist. He has worked as a trainer in high-performance sport since 1981. Before that, he was at home on the long haul himself.
His biggest hobby used to be climbing, he has conquered several 7000m peaks and worked in Australia for a long time. Today he manages the camp, works as a web designer, gives lectures and seminars. He loves sailing, always has new ideas and is constantly challenged with new craftsmanship.
He has been active in sled dog sport for 8 years. With his Siberian Huskys he finished third in the 6-dog class in the middle distance at the European Championship 2011 and fourth in the World Championship 2012. The same team mastered the Alpentrail, one of the most difficult stage races in Europe. He is currently building up a new racing team with his own offspring and has already infected many “newcomers” with the “husky virus”.
Andreas is in training as a dog trainer, speaks German, English, Swedish and some Russian.
