I am a professional philosopher & work as an academic in Berlin, Germany. Apart from my work I like sports like running, swimming, riding my bicycle or practising yoga. I go to art museums as often as possible & love theatre and music. My favoured way of travelling is either exploring big cities, going on far distance hiking trips or on extended mountainbike tours. One of my best travel experiences ever was a long canyoning trip in the Blue Mountains in NSW, Australia. I like conversing with other people and reading books. Being a guest of my friends or whomsoever, I think it important to treat the place that others entrusted to me with outmost care and leave it in exactly the condition I found it.
