About Me




usually living in Leipzig (East of Germany).

friendly, emphatic, amusing, spontaneous, strong sense for injustice, sometimes acute (when something does not work as i want to).

there are two passions - photographing and writing songs, which make me in a philosophical way thinking about myself, my doing, people (surrounding me). it is something like catching moments, situation, stopping the world's spinning for some time. For the reason of being able to reflect, regarding them from another standpoint. Trying to understand more than just their existence, but thinking about what happend before, what will be, how they are connected...


life must be more than just work, money, social advancement. although it will be harder, we should try to tease out of it as much as we can, making us happy, making other happy. enriching...well it's hard to quote a personal philosophy in some sentences. But i prefere a simple, non-fancy life, with freedom to choose what my life should look like. I lived 4 years studying hard, working, teaching and found out, that i lost so many invaluable things - my best friend and girlfriend, enjoying music, concerts, photographing...i try...to change many things...poco a poco
