About Me

I am always curious about new people, experience and knowledge. For my living I work as a civil servant at the IT department of the social welfare office Nuremberg and in my spare time I work as a voluntary sports trainer and examiner. Of course I also do sports myself and enjoy running and cycling the most. Also I was active in politics for a some years, but I've calmed down a bit in the meantime

Some years ago I made the decision to take part in a (half) marathon in a major city once every half year and to combine it with travelling. For example I participated in Dublin, Reykjavik, Berlin and Kiev. Te last two ones were Valencia and Lisbon. My next stops, as far as COVID19 allows, are The Hague, Cardiff, Prague, Copenhagen, Valencia and Pyongyang. Where possible I try to go there by bike.

And because it is currently important, although it should go without saying: I am fully vaccinated against COVID19 and also have all the vaccinations recommended for Europe.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge fan of Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, Haruki Murakami, and many more. My most favorised book is "A Scanner Darkly" by Philip K. Dick, which was also picturised with Keanu Reeves in lead. Lately I read more specialist and political literature, and currently I love reading comic books like Batman. I also like movies of all genres, from mainstream to indy. In music my taste also varies between mainstream and indy.

I passed a lot of seminars in communication, social skills, public relations, local politics and youth work, further I am trained in first aid and I try learning differnt languages at Busuu.com, mainly Spanish.
