About Me


be buzz lightyear, but not the douchy one!


Most people like cats. When I was a kid I actually didn´t like cats, so I was pretending I was allergic to them. For some reason over the last couple of years my skin starts to get a bit itchy and I have to sneeze when cats are around. Strange, isn´t it? Then again, when I go to the doctor and fill out the sheet about illnesses and all that stuff, I still don´t write about my cat allergy. Some people call this denial. I guess, that´s exactly what it is.
Just the other day a friend of mine was talking about how everyone subconsciously mixes up the content and the source of a message by attributing the charecteristics of the content to the source. So after reading this little paragraph you´ll think of cats, food, doctors and denial when you think about me now! We have to change this, so I am going write down some things you should think about, when you meet me in person:
humble, creative, witty, good dancer, smart, handsome, cool, educated, better cook than you think, a good writer who can connect to people not only through his work but also through his personality, hip, but not annoyingly hip, good taste in music and movies, fun loving, curious, passionate, kind, a person with a good heart, even though he doesn´t like cats.


Spend your time with people you really care about.


I like playing, eating, sleeping, thinking, drinking, reading. Music and films, arts, all pretty cool. yep!

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Il homme qui aimait les femmes, Her, Taxi Driver, Head-On, One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest, Into the Wild, Jackie Brown, Blue Valentine, Jim et Jules, Blowup, Dallas Buyers Club, old Hitchcocks

Music: There is so much good stuff out there, some of the stuff I've live in the last year might give you a good impression --> Mac DeMarco, King Krule, Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Fink, Fenster, Youth Lagoon, Kurt Vile. I admire John Frusciante, Townes van Zandt and Rio Reiser. My dad is big into funk and I love it. I also love the Fusion Festival - I've been living in Berlin for a while now and obviously electronic music had a big impact on me ever since i got here. I am a very unskilled musician myself I have to admit.

Books and Authors I like: Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, Kurt Vonnegut, Raymond Carver, Miranda July, Haruki Murakami, Beat Literature, Hunter S. Thompson, Walden, The Pillowman, Kafka, Maus, Infinite Jest
