About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just to be happy with everything I do and to make other people laugh :-)

ABOUT ME

I think I’m open-minded, honest, helpful and sometimes a little bit crazy!
But the best way to know all about me is to meet me in real! :-)

PHILOSOPHY

There are 3 african symbols I like very much which you can also see at the wall in my room:

Ubuntu (there is no word which could describe this philosophy correctly)
Uhuru (Liberty)
Sankofa: “Learning from the past” – an Adinkra symbol from Ghana!

Interests

Many.. there are too many interesting things to do...

DANCING... Salsa, Merengue, halay, contact dance or any other. I am curious to learn any dancing style... for fun, not for being professional of course ;-).
And am singing a lot and everywhere (although I’m not a good singer).

Moreover I love traveling, jugglying, reading and playing theater, especially political street theater or forum theater (Augusto Boal).

Am interested in learning more about producing documentaries, writing stories and alternative lifestyles (farming, cooking delicious vegetarian meals, etc.)

Music, Movies & Books

Films:
too many, let's start with those I don't like: any typical Hollywood film! And a small example of those i like which come to my mind now: The Edukators, Nairobi - Half life, The Big Lebowski, etc.

Books:
anyone of Bertolt Brecht and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Music:
Salsa, Reggae, Balkan and any song we can sing together while sitting around a fire place in an nice environment.

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's learn together whatever we feel like: Dancing, cooking, languages, story-telling, jugglying, painting, climbing, playing table-tennis, fishing, etc. ...
