About Me


enjoying life


I'm a friendly and open minded guy who likes to do Sports(especially Football, Skiing, riding bikes or running), watching Movies at the cinema, listen to good Music(see list below), attending concerts and reading books.
I´m also interested in cooking, meeting people, having partys or just to talk with interesting people.


You should enjoy every day. A Day without laughing is wasted. Life´s to short for being in a bad mood. And so: Don´t worry, be happy!
