About Me


trust me, im the vicar...


i come from kassel and studied in wuppertal, halle and leipzig, so i got around in germany a little. i study theology and also like to do things with ymca-groups, special youth-churchservices, etc. im still not one of those who talk about nothing but faith and try to persuade the whole world... rather like the silent spirituality, for example in the community of taize in france. interreligious and religious-atheist exchange is a mission for the future, maybe cs can contribute...

hobbies are (besides travelling) playing guitar and e-bass. i also played in some funny bands, but never with own songs. we usually just gather together before the church service starts and play then.

i did many things with media stuff, for exampel write for onlinemagazines and the student radio (all semi-professional though :)) if you understand german you should for exampel visit or, where i contributed a little.

another hobby is to go to every poetry slam i can find, i could listen to poetry slam all day (what is even possible on youtube ...)

concerning what to eat im comfortable with all, i dont mind to eat meat as long as its not fast food. but i also dont need meat every day...

if you want to add me on facebook just ask me for the name, its not the clear name there (dont trust them as much as cs...)
