Fab was born in 1979 in Geneva, Switzerland the capital of precision machining and mechanical watches. In 1993, he played his first game with his brother Fred at an indoor field near their home. Instantly becoming hooked, they played paintball every chance they could…dreaming of one day becoming professional players themselves. 2 years later he created Team Crows competing in local and national tournaments, where he met legendary player Pete “Robbo” Robinson at an event in Paris. A mentor who would shape his future paintball career. He turned pro in 1996, playing on teams Turks UK, Enemy, Aftershock, Shockwave UK, Shockwave California, Camp Tigers, Hellwood, TonTons and Arsenal. Not interested in traditional school, he followed his passion building custom paintball guns, teaching himself industrial design, and ultimately creating METEOR in 1999. Over the years the sport and METEOR evolved from making mechanical autocockers and sterling pumps to electronic Angels, Bushmasters, Impulses, and Shockers. In 2005, Fab became the head designer for Kingman (Spyder) and spent most of his time traveling between California and Taiwan. Transitioning from behind the drawing table that he started on into 3D design. Thanks to a friend who ran part of Spyder’s production, he was able to learn CNC programming and eventually setup his own machines at his home in the Swiss Alps. In 2013 he left paintball for a fresh perspective, developing new design projects for different industries. It wasn’t until 2017, after coming across an old photo of his brothers stolen Autococker, that he decided to recreate it as a surprise for his 40th birthday…reigniting his passion for the sport and rebuilding the METEOR brand.
