My name is Don Lowman, I am originally from the US, born in Indiana and I grew up in Texas and Florida. However, I have been living abroad (France, South Korea and Germany) for the past 12 years due to school and work. I have been working at universities in Germany for the past 9 years. My wonderful wife and I met about 9 years ago while I was studying here and we got married 5 years ago in Florida.
I play lots of sports (basketball, ultimate frisbee and tae kwon do), travel extensively and am involved in volunteer work (I coach an under 16 basketball team for the YMCA) and organize culture, art and music events at the university. We spent the last 13months (until Sept 23rd) living in Portland, Oregon, one of my favorite cities in the world, but we are now, quite happily, back in Kassel. I am also rather passionate (maybe over zealous at times) about good coffee and beer:)
I am very laid back and like to relax and chat with new people, learn about new cultures and simply explore the world.
