About Me

Curious, I'd say. Into conversations and people who contribute to it with humour and opinions of their own, if possible.
Like travelling, lived in France & Turkey, but got used to Berlin, really, I guess.
Love the sea and the mountains, the south and the north, the east & the west.
fond of learning languages, but at the moment more & more interested in using my hands also: cooking. digging holes. planting. constructing. stuff like that.
ah, and I'd really like to do more contact improvisation... :)


- u're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
& the clock waits oh so patiently on your song -


reading. movies. strolling through cities. walking up hills & breathing sea air.
