He made his World Cup debut in November 1998 with a 48th place in Lillehammer, and participated in the Four Hills Tournament where he collected his first World Cup points with an eighteenth place in Oberstdorf.

In the 1999–2000 season he did not collect a single World Cup point, despite several starts, but in the 2000–2001 season he competed more often and did better. He took a fourteenth place already in December in Kuopio, followed up with a seventeenth place in January in Park City and a fourth place in March in Trondheim. At the 1999 World Ski Championships he finished 46th in the normal hill and 29th in the large hill, and at the 2001 World Ski Championships he finished 18th in the normal hill, 25th in the large hill and tenth in the team competition.[3]

He made his Continental Cup debut in November 2001 in Kuusamo, and his best results were two eighth places from Falun and Calgary in 2002. He also competed in the 2001–2002 World Cup, but with a 22nd place (Engelberg in December) as the best finish. In the 2002–2003 World Cup he finished between 20th and 30th place five times. At the 2003 World Ski Championships he finished 34th in the normal hill and 33rd in the large hill.[3]
