About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Planning my trip to Colombia and Brazil

ABOUT ME

I would describe myself as litarally hungry in all senses, because I don't only love all kinds of food, feasts, dinners and breakfast from different cultures - I kind of got yearning for a bohemian lifestyle. Though, I am a stereotype German who loves to be in time and work and study hard, to reach his potential. But being hungry for cultures and foreign language motivates as well for travelling and living uproad.

During school I lived with a Canadian host family for a few months and had school interchanges to France, Italy and Greece. 2010/2011 was studying and working in Bilbao and Madrid, and 2012/2013 I was privileged to study one semester in Rio de Janeiro! Back then I travelled a lot through Brazil. What an adventure! Furthermore, last winter 2013/2014 I spent 6 months in Suzhou, China, working on my masters Thesis and I had the chance to get to know some amazing places in China! My Mandarin is poor, though.

Right now I finished my master and will start working in the area of consulting from Jan-2015 on.
Until then I will have time to travell: October-November I will visit Colombia, in December I will have a short visit "back in Brazil".

Furthermore I love all kinds of Sports, from Decathlon to Volleyball, Skiing and Surfing, I love dancing, partying and cooking with Friends and Couch-Surfers.
