About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Do more stuff more often.

ABOUT ME

I love music, seeing beautiful cities (I'm a sucker for architecture), unique places and living historic sites. I might get a bit absorbed into thoughts and new impressions but don't worry that doesn't mean I'm not fine!
Definitely a bit goofy at times :)

PHILOSOPHY

You can't know anything for sure unless you have tried it often enough. :D

Try it and you might fail, don't try it and you already failed.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to travel my last days in Mexico - back in my hometown I'm open for anything, but I doubt I could host someone :(

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been to Guadalajara with a friend and we got a whole freaking big-ass apartment complete to ourselves - via couchsurfing! :D
Then again once in Guanajuato and I met a lot of fantastic people there.
With one of them I went on to see a load of places in Mexico, we became intimate friends and motivated another to see even more great places.

Interests

Being silly, being serious, music, humour, art, acting, architecture, design, movies, painting, videogames, gamedesign, sculpture, languages, ducks and how to create all kinds of stuff.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Tool, Björk, Nine Inch Nails, Café Tacuba, Panteón Rococó, Die Ärzte, Die Orsons, Clueso, Kraftklub... All kinds of genre as long as it is made with love.
Since Berlin it's a lot of Arjuna Schiks, Nicolas Jaar and more minimal electronic music.

Books:
Der Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse - so rich in details and so many reasons to love living your life, even though it might appear difficult.
Almost everything by Walter Moers - just gotta love him!
Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami - crazy and a funny read.
The Physicists by Dürrenmatt - I read it every few years, I'm kinda attracted to that book, haha
Currently I'm reading Norwegian Wood by Murakami in Spanish (his style is easy enough for me to practice my spanish) and I left Catch-22 in Germany, I'll pick it up again as soon as I get back.
I also have a list of Mexican authors I need to read - feel free to recommend me any.

Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Kund Fu Hustle, Magnolia, Paprika, Persepolis, fuuuh I'll add more later

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spent a whole year in Mexico and did a social service teaching English and German for free while living with a mexican family.

Uhm apart?
I kinda made a painting in one night because the deadline for a state-wide art contest was due to the very next day. I finished it, sent it in and qualified for a nation-wide art-workshop. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Uhm I guess some things about art? A lot of language-theory. Random stuff! I can tell a lot, I guess I should ask other people what they have learned from me.
Due to my field of study I can bloat out a lot of half-certain facts about architecture :D

Countries I've Visited

Denmark, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Poland, Spain, Turkey, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Germany, Mexico
