About Me


Every opportunity to improve oneself, is an opportunity to improve the world


Through several exchange-experience,including 1 1/2 months in france, 1 year in colorado usa and two weeks in mexico during school, I soon appreciated the new-gained experiences. Therefor the decision to travel through south and north america directly after finishing school was inevitable.
Hence I had to internalize thenecessary travel-charackteristics such as openness,sensitivity and gratefulness. One could name many more, but those have shown to be very important in the beginning of getting to know someone.

Other than that, I love to play any kind of sports. So far I have played soccer,basketball,american football, lacrosse and handball on a league level.
Since I live close to beach I try to go swimming two times a week.


The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move it, and join the dance...


Im very interested in understanding other peoples thoughts about everyday subjects or physophical topics in order to deeply get to know the different culture. So I have had several exciting conversations with americans about Obamacare, the ncaa, education system, and the power of amazon and google. And always looking for the next, new input!

Music, Movies, and Books

Depends on my state of mind. The adapted music for the situation. I appreciate the work of Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons and William Fitzsimmons. Though there are times where I (kind of shamefully) can as well listen to catchy chart-pop-songs, just to joke around.

In my opinion the movie "Good Will Hunting" can be very inspiring for young people.

At the moment I'm reading "Like the flowing River" by Paulo Coelho
