ABOUT ME

Namasté!

I reeeeeally love traveling and Yoga, thats one of the most important things for me. I travel to find my home and my spirituel way... Sometimes I will get sentimental if I can`t be on a journey. So I will try to find my alternative way to live happy, with a lot of time to travel and to learn.

I´m also a photographer and retoucher and love to shoot people naturally, like documentary in life situations, in nature or totaly opposite to shoot very fairy or surreal. For me photography is not only to show nice pictures, its also to show the brutal truth, to make people see what`s going on in the world or with other people, to show real feelings, to tight important moments and to spend a lot of fun. A few through the camera could open people`s eyes, to look closely, to begin to understand things...

I`m also looking for other photographers who are interested to teach kids in the Slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Please contact me if you are interested.

PHILOSOPHY

... don't try to convince me of something, but you could give me a clue... ;-)

I will find out my aim, my way and my country to life and self - realization.

I also like the swahili way of saying to live "pole pole" (slowly slowly) & "hakuna matata (no worrys) :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

in Kenya: I felt for me the opposite way to life. Everything is different, its a feeling of going back to the roots.

in Thailand: I love the little island in Thailand without much civilization and no cars. And in Chang rai the rain forest and mountains and the different mountain villages with the different nice cultures ...

I love it to travel and see so much new things and get experience! Love the beautiful world! <3
