About Me


enjoying this, the last, and the next moment


I live in Berlin, the one city in Germany where I always wanted to spend my life... But sometimes (and sometimes rather means often) I still do need to get out and travel the world.

So, I guess that's about 1/80000 of me. Stay tuned for the next bit and I'll tell you about my passion for Lego, Ramen, Basketball, Photography, Improv Theatre...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's one of the best possibilities to get surprised and overwhelmed by the hospitality and generosity of people. Especially when more and more people are on airbnb, I think it's refreshing and unique to be friendly and kind to strangers without having to take money from them.
Best things in life are FREE after all!


photography (click, click, click!), music, gigs & festivals, basketball, writing, everything green, literature, piano, guitar, curry in all kinds, passion fruit juice, beach volleyball, thinking, wisdom, getting lost while traveling...

Music, Movies, and Books

BOOKS that make me put them away for some seconds while I read them, but also the ones who make me laugh for a moment. for
example: Hesse, Dostojevski, Wilde, Foer, Kehlmann, Regener, Yalom

MUSIC that make me just plunge right into the sound and get lost: Radiohead, Queens Of The Stone Age, Sufjan Stevens Turkish and Anatolian Music from the 70s, Lucio Battisti and everything Italian from the 70s. What the hell, I love the 70s!
Also also enjoy more and more electronic music since I moved to Berlin: Gold Panda, The Notwist, Pantha du Prince, SBTRKT, DJ Koze, Nicolas Jaar, Nicola Cruz, Zomby, Console, Yeasayer, Caribou

MOVIES that last longer than two hours in my mind, for example Hiroshima Mon Amour, Cidade de Deus, Amores Perros, Fight Club, Oldboy, Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot, Dancer in the dark, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Shortbus, Außer Atem,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This always sounds like bragging when you read it. So I'll do this: I make you think about a pink elephant on a bike carrying a big birthday cake.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to do percussion on a yoghurt cup.
Also I play improv theatre and I'm happy to share it as well.
Also how to prepare some great dishes, because I love food!
