About Me


Life's a journey, not a destination


Some adjectives to describe how I see myself would be:
Curious, Open-Minded, Optimistic, Spontaneous, Ironic, Helpful, Active, Handsome, Thoughtful, Honest, Humorous, Easy-Going, Rational, Sports-Loving, Humanist, Socialist


All humans are equal, regardless of gender, skin colour, religious belief or sexual orientation. Human rights are therefore universal, unconditional and not discussable.

Most conflicts and prejudices result from a lack of contact between people. In my view, connecting people and enhancing cooperation is the ultimate way for peace, empathy and mutual understanding!
