About Me


We are all crazy. Here is the head office.


I am 53 years old, working as a freelance journalist based in Bremen and am interested in meeting new and interesting people.
I am liberal an open minded, love my hometown Bremen and I am particularly interested in the developments in Eastern Europe, especially in Belarus and Kaliningrad - Belarus, because I was there several times 20 years ago, and Kaliningrad, because my ancestors from my fathers side came from there. For this reason I am doing a bit of genealogy.

Wir wollen mehr Demokratie wagen. (Willy Brandt)
Der Herr badet gerne lau. (Herbert Wehner)
Herr Präsident, Sie sind ein Arschloch. (Joschka Fischer)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In spring 1992 I was in villages evacuated after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. In the summer of 1992, I learned the Belarusian mentality during a three-week holiday.
In 1997 and 1998 I went with the Red Cross to Hungary.
Unforgettable is also my visit to London this year.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have much knowledge of politics and contemporary history to offer (German history, development in Eastern Europe, etc.).
