About Me

ABOUT ME

I live in Windhoek now. Before this I lived in Switzerland for three years and Germany also for three years. Before this I was in South Africa and a little in Germany too.

I love living in Windhoek: here I am able to have a balanced life. I have job satisfaction (well mostly...) and yet get enough time to play too. Apart from an odd beer or two I enjoy cycling, hiking and swimming. I also do a little yoga every now and again to mainly complement the swimming.

I love music (pretty versatile range of genres!!) and ja, enjoy company and (again, mostly :) ) am good humoured and easy going and ok to hang around with too.

The perfect day: good food, good wine, good company and good music

PHILOSOPHY

I believe we should always seek to respect each other. Respect is one of the most important virtues that make our society work. Sorry is a short word. Use it. Smiling too is easy ! :) :)
