Fabian is a seasoned traveler with a decade of exploring diverse corners of the globe. He embarked on daring journeys, driving an old Mercedes from Berlin to Cape Town and traversing South America in a Land Rover while running his IT startup, helpando.it, from the road. Fabian was one of the first employees of the now-public San Francisco-based internet startup Zendesk and played a pivotal role in its early success.
In the realm of freediving, Fabian's journey began in Mexico in 2016 under the guidance of national champion Pepe Salcedo. Furthering his training with Blueocean Freedivers in Dahab, Egypt, he obtained his AIDA Instructor certification in 2019 from Walid Boudhiaf in San Andres, Colombia. Venturing into the Molchanovs training system, Fabian completed his crossover with Julia Mouce of Apnea Bali in Bali, Indonesia. In 2023, he achieved a dive to 96m in the FIM discipline, securing the #2 spot among Germany's deepest divers.
Transitioning from a nomadic lifestyle, Fabian has found his haven in Lustica, Montenegro, where he shares his passion for freediving and breathwork, living a wholesome, active, and adventurous life on the untamed peninsula. Apart from his expeditions, Fabian is recognized as an international speaker, having delivered talks i over 20 countries in English, Spanish, German and Portuguese. He has two TEDx talks and was featured in prominent media outlets like Arte, Wired and the Financial Times and making appearances on more than 30 podcasts.
