About Me


Coffee or drunk.



2002-2006: studies in dresden (ancient history, medieval history, philosophy)
2006-2010: living in frankfurt, finishing my studies, doing almost any job there was to find, starting my phd
2010-2012: broke up with frankfurt, moved to vienna, continuing my phd, travelling to dresden every 2 weeks because I was teaching at the university
2013: moved to freiburg, to my family. still working on the phd, developing board games, coaching goalkeepers, splitting firewood, arguing with my dog...
since 2015: still here, still the phd and the firewood. most of my time goes in our refugee football team now, check us out:
december 2016: I'll move back to dresden for 6 months to finish this phd thing


I'm a happy sceptic.
