About Me


I come from Biel/Bienne, a small but great town in Switzerland. I used to work in a soup kitchen, in bars and restaurants, on the Swiss Alps and different non profit projects. I went to some sort of film school and made an internship as a videojournalist at the local tv station.
I used to organise concerts and other collective, non-commercial stuff like kitchen for all or documentary movie nights...and was part of different social cultural projects.
Right now i try to concentrate a bit more on what i want to do and learn. So basically, when I'm at home I make things happen, when I'm traveling I let things happen (sometimes I also make things happen, don't worry.)
I am moving several times a year, lived in many different places with many different roommates so i have quiet an experience about community life and its advantages (and disadvantages ;). I slept on roofs, in elevators and greenhouses so don't worry about my comfort ;). I love to cook for others (cleaning and keep things in order is natural to me).
I like to help people realize and developing their ideas and projects and try to connect the right people together.
I'd love to work more in video, but since i don't have a camera with me and no computer, i don't have so many possibilities. I only got a shitty recorder on me. And my notebook.
I play the drums so if you know somebody that got a drum set - i'd be so grateful!
