About Me


a life of adventure


I write poetry, I´ve written two novels and am writing another big story atm - a really scary story: my life - I teach workshops on Tantric spirituality and Buddhism etc. I'm interested in and try to live as best I can an alternative lifestyle. The couch I have to offer can only be availible for 3 days at a time... and I must have a few days notice.


I seek to live creatively, growing with insight, seeking deeper connections and understanding of the world, culture and relationships. This understandng I hope leading to compassion.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I travelled to China November 2011 for two weeks. I visited many places but the most beautiful and amazing place was Hua SHan (Mt Hua). It was like seeing the reality behind all those classical Chinese paintings of fog and mountains and pine trees growing from rugged cliffs. Just brilliant.
