About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Recognise the YOU is I

ABOUT ME

Feel free to add me on facebook (only after having met me) or xing.com, I like open networking.

I was born in Dubai where I had been living the first 5 years of my life.

I am NOT cool or relaxed nor do I want pretend to be so. I rather try to be warmhearted and concerned about the people around me and politics/society.
I love dancing and singing although I usually drink only little and dont smoke (and don't do other drugs either).

Freedom is very important to me, I like to be independent.

I love to discuss about politics, philosophy and religion because I am curious about your approach to life.

As former consultant I can hardly not comment on inefficiencies. I also like to get critisized because it gives me the possibility to change.

Furthermore I enjoy playing strategic board games

I go bouldering (kind of climbing) regularly.

Cooking is fun, too, especially if my surfers or hosts show me something new.

PHILOSOPHY

My first goal in life is to become a better person because I think that this is the only way to establish long lasting and stable happiness, whatever the circumstances are. In order to have fun intrinsic motivated actions are more efficient in my opinion and most of the times easier to afford as well than extrinsic motivated approaches. My personal philosophy is influenced by buddhist philosophy and the findings of happiness research (empirical).
