About Me

CURRENT MISSION

finding balance

ABOUT ME

I am an easy going
guy living between Schönbrunn and Westbahnhof in Rudolfsheim.
Love is the most important which there is. Not only between man and woman but also how one treats his environment.
I am an environmentalist and individualist, most of my time I use for working as data analyst, statistics and numbers, but also for the NGO www.inex.org. The rest of the time I train sport fencing, dont be afraid I am absolutely non-aggressive and can show you if you like to.

PHILOSOPHY

Individualism, its better that everyone satisfies his needs after his own will, than that one leader manages this, because how can the big wo/man know the needs of all people?
