About Me

CURRENT MISSION

trade my A4 sheet of paper for an Audi of the same type

ABOUT ME

I love Juicy Fruit chewing gum; I like to sip Cherry Cokes, Mint Juleps & Old Fashioneds, and nibble on beef steaks. Climb mountains, break the sound barrier on my race bike and stroll around pretty much anywhere.
I moved to Hungary and work as a management consultant.
Previously, I lived&worked in Lima and Toronto; and back home in Germany, at private equity firms and such fancy-panty stuff. I lived 20+ years in the Vaterland, so it was time to get out of zerre...have been livin' in Hungary for ~7 years now. Yepp, that´s it in a nutshell.
M'kay?
Oh, did you know: 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

PHILOSOPHY

Make sure the juice is worth the squeeze.

anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant.

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Avalanches, giant glaciers, cubic-mile icebergs, earthquakes in peru, arctic sunsets, lightning storms/supercells, arctic snowstorms. apparently I am impressed by natural phenomena, booom-shakalaka!

One time I had that dream, where you and me were falling from a high cliff. However, we didn't die upon impact, as you dropped into a giant pot of honey and i dropped into another big pot right next to yours, but mine was filled with shit. You instantly started laughing at me, cuz i was covered in shit all over. But then somebody ordered us to climb out of those pots, and lick off each other's bodies. Well, you stopped laughing then.
