Sebastian was born in Romania. After finishing a college
degree in Social Science and building his climbing skills,
Sebastian spent several years travelling and climbing in
Europe, South America and across Canada. n 2014 Sebastian came to the Rockies for a month of ice climbing
and the following year moved to Canmore altogether. More
and more time was spent climbing all throughout the year,
and in 2016 Sebastian entered the Guiding career by taking
his first course with the ACMG. He was certified Apprentice
Alpine Guide in 2018. Sebastian prefers to spend all his
available time ice, alpine and multipitch climbing, a task that
became a bit harder since he became a new and happy Dad
