About Me


enjoy serendipity!

»when i walked home from the cinema lately i had the thought, that the main thing for me is to cherish beauty. and that word beauty i mean in a deep way that might be described as well as love.
in everday life of course i'm struggling to live up to this idea, or sometimes i forget about it until some incident reminds me about it. i hope i will learn better and better to stay connected with this thought, that is rather a feeling or a way of living«

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I made experiences traveling through iceland, spain (galicia) and portugal and hosting in my flat in vienna (which I don't have anymore) and I'm looking forward to meet interesting and inspiring people - either by hosting or on further travels...


I'm interested in emancipatory practices and good theory, arts - sculpture, film, photography, music, performance, literature,.. - bodywork, pedagogy and many other things like gardening, cooking, hiking & climbing, glitter, ..

In 2008 I finished a school for sculpturing. For the last years I am a student at the academy of fine arts vienna, where I read fine arts and cultural studies.

one focus of my interest is about human processes and development - how humans grow up and identity is forming. how do we realise our lives, how do we act within the given structures? or in more philosophical words: subjectivation and intersubjectivity.

Music, Movies & Books

books I enjoyed (recently or some time ago): t.c. boyle 'water music', galsan tschinag 'graue erde', eve k. sedgwick 'a dialogue on love' and 'touching feeling', haruki murakami 'kafka am strand', josef winkler 'das zoeglingsheft des jean genet', michel foucault 'von der freundschaft als lebensweise' ..

bjork, antony & the johnsons, cocorosie, ratatat, tom waits, nina simone, helge schneider, keith jarrett, han bennink, carla bozulich...
