About Me


I will be traveling for 10 months from 1.10.2015 on. First I will head to Portugal to join a Rainbow Gathering and after that I plan either spend some time in Lisabon or voluntere in some permaculture places.
By the end of october, I will head on to the canary island. I plan to spend nearly to whole winter there.
After that, I will visit some countries around the canarys like Morroco, Kap Verde, Senegal,....


I spend 3 days a week in the office and programm database based applications. But this is not my passion (though I definitivly can't say I hate computer programming).

Here in Berlin, I am living in a housing-cooperative with around 20 people. We planed the house together as a self organized group for our community.

If I am not travelling, I spend much of my time in alternative projects.

I like doing practical stuff like working with wood, repairing bikes.
