About Me




I consider myself a friendly, laidback and very open-minded person. I'm seeking for inspiration all of the time, love to think in unorthodox ways and exchange my thoughts with others and would be happy to meet people who feel the same way.I try to live life in a conscious way. As for that, things that are important to me are vegetarian lifestyle, sustainability, slowness, and being aware of political and social issues.I'm not following a certain belief, but I live my spirituality through music. Thus, I'm a DJ and electronic music producer. Music is probably the most important part of my life, whereat I prefer all sorts of sound having their roots in black music.
UPDATE: Since June 2012, I'm sharing my flat with Nyan and Maru, the two cutest kitty cats on this planet! They love having guests around just as much as I do and even if I may be busy, you'll always have great company at my home :)


I believe in the principle of conservation of energy, which says that energy contains constant and thus can neither be created or destroyed, but it can be converted to other forms of energy.

As for oneself, society, earth or even the universe, that means that every form of energy that once appears and later seems to dissappear, it's not lost but converted. As a consequence, the supreme discipline is how to use energy in a way that is efficient for aims that may be considered "good".

While we live on this planet, our bodies and minds are driven by enormous energetic processes. Once we die, considering the principle of conservation of energy, the energy is not lost but converted into other energy. My belief is, that every little thing you do within your lifetime, everything you hand on to other people, may it be words, acts, touches or even a simple smile or a tree that you plant, is energy that stays conserved.

My philosophy is to be aware of energetic processes and use them wisely. My aim is to convert energy in a way that makes it instrumental for the coming generations. Shortly said: Love, consciousness, equity, peace.
