About Me

22 / German 🇩🇪 / Professional nerd 🤓

Hi there! I'm Michael and I'm living and working from my backpack for the next 6 month. I'm very passionate about challenging myself and learning new stuff, so my daily schedule is usually filled with reading, working or meeting interesting people.

I'm kind of a nerdy German Engineer dude, so if you don't enjoy sitting in the kitchen philosophizing about life, do yourself a favour and do NOT request or host me pls. :)

At the moment I particularly enjoy learning about philosophy and psychology. I started meditating and going to the gym regularly about 2 years ago. I always have a "project" going on, that I can work on, no matter if it's building my own furniture, an electrolysis cell or programming apps.
I genuinely love people, who have their own opinion and are willing to discuss and maybe even change it.

But enough of me. If you wanna get to know more you'll have to meet me :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

spontaneously spent a night on a cargo ship with the captain drinking beer and philosophizing about life 🚢

Teach, Learn, Share

sharing some of the crazy moments of life together 🤪
not enough for you, hugh? I can teach you some Spanish, Swahili or how to catch a fish with your bare hands 🤨
Just kidding by the way, actually I'm stupid as fuck..

What I Can Share with Hosts

I believe that living a "good" life means to handle your health, wealth, love and happiness in some way.
So if you're interested in one of these topics, I hope we can share our insights and maybe both grow a bit from our time together. :)

I also enjoy going out, approaching strangers and sharing good vibes with everyone. However, I hate being passive, so if you like standing around with your drink in your hand, I will probably leave after 2min for some philosophy books. :D
