About Me


learn and share


After many years of living in Australia, Japan and Indonesia, while studying fine arts and the system of yoga I just moved back to Vienna end of 2011.
I enjoy meeting new people, good conversation, sharing stories and laughter and good food.

I try to live my life as fully as possible and to always lead with the heart.
I contemplate a lot but enjoy getting "out of the brain". be continued...


"...Do not let me hear
Of the wisdom of old men, but rahter of their folly,
Their fear of fear and frenzy, their fear of possession,
Of belonging to another, or to others, or to God.
The only wisdom we can hope to acquire
Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless..."
T.S Eliot
