About Me

Briefly: I´m an adventurous optimist, smiling and enjoying life and it´s beautiful stories :)

I grew up on a farm in the countryside in Bavaria very close to the Czech Republic. I´m addicted to adventures, always looking forward to traveling to new places, meeting people and exchanging about experiences and plans. I´d like to make a journey around the world after finishing my Masters. :)

Oh aaand I love photography :) I´m kind of a self-taught photographer working self-employed. That´s the way I see the world:

Currently I´m doing my Masters in Media & Design Management commuting between my shared flat in Wiesbaden and my home town.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one?
I felt the magic when the sun was rising at Machu Picchu, I saw a smoking volcano in Peru, I did a road trip through Australia, I ate the salt of the Uyuni dessert in Bolivia, I had a 10 hour lift in Australia, I travelled 17 hours by bus through Peru, I dived at The Great Barrier Reef, I did an amazing skydive from 1.400 ft in Australia, I smelled Bolivian geysers...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you German and skills in photography and graphic design. I like to share good music and delicious recipes and I would be happy to learn more about meditation.
