About Me


to capture a ship and discover the world and the universe


I'm a human being who is as exceptionally normal and deviant as you are. I like the sun and the light as well as I like the darkness and the moon. I like learning things from other people, from mother nature and all the other creatures and things that are surrounding me. I like sharing and creating things and I'm always seeking for something new, exciting. I like advenures.


"Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing..." - Oscar Wilde


Why stop dreaming when you wake up?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are a lot of amazing things I've done and seen...
I love to be amazed by little things every day like for example the feeling of warm sunlight on my skin, the sound of the wind or the smell of the upcoming rain :) ... I think every day and every moment got the potential to be amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

-> I like to reflect on cultural phenomenons, cultural processes, the differences, similarities and connections between cultures and people. What does culture mean? How does it influence and connect individuals and groups? How are we connected?...
-> We can make art together or I can teach you about art history or child education.
-> Exchange our experiences...
-> and I can tell you a fairy tale if you like :)
