About Me


squeezing my sleeping bag into my backpack


Hey there, I am a singer-songwriter, based in Berlin. I have spent some time traveling Europe, busking, hitchhiking, writing. After spending the last twelve months on recording, releasing and supporting a band album, I feel like I need a break from the mechanics of all that. So I'm getting ready to hit the road these days.


If your life was a movie, would you want to watch it?


Songwriting, recording, meeting people, carrying my gear across Europe, making room in my mind for new ideas and the good stuff (brainy, brainy, brainy...).

Music, Movies, and Books

Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Radiohead, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Jason Isbell, Josh Ritter, Nick Cave, The National are up there.

Recently I read a few books by Andreas Altmann, a German travel writer, living in Paris. And I read a book about a guy crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a tree. That was fun.

Movies I'd return to are Into The Wild, Reign Over Me, Midnight In Paris, Elizabethtown (for the soundtrack) and A River Runs Through It. Maybe add Dr. Strangelove.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I crossed the mountains of Leon (Spain) on a sunny day after a snowstorm. 33 kilometers in one day with too much gear. Should've been dead tired after that, but I wasn't. Mind and body worked together really well that day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you a bit about playing the guitar and maybe singing, writing songs, recording music.

I'd love to learn more about outdoor survival and sailing. I'd really like to travel Europe by boat. If you have one to give away, I'm all yours!
