About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting open minded people and having a good time together. Learning from each other.

ABOUT ME

my best friends would describe me: "Open minded and curious for everyone and everything"
I love meeting and learning about new people, new places, new sports, books, jobs... almost everything :-)

I'v worked now for over 8 years as an engineer, but mainly got interested in the social field as well, dealing with humans instead of machines. That's why i've chosen to work as a coach as well. Topics are "starting your own business", "creating trustfull connections" and "dealing with mental problems".

My way of life changed a lot during the last years. It's very minimalist by now - I try to reduce myself as much as possible from materialistic things to get time and freedom for more enjoyable parts of life, like meeting and working with nice people, learning a lot different things or enjoying nature.

PHILOSOPHY

"Absorb what is useful, discard what is not and add what is uniquely your own" - Bruce Lee
