born 1969 in gelsenkirchen / germany. I lived in madrid with my parents from age four to seven. My profession is social work. one of my passions is to travel and see and experience different countries/ cultures and get in contact with people. i have travelled through india, africa, central america and europe to name a few places. oh and of course i really enjoy forgein food and i like cooking a lot. one of my great passions is music, i listen to all sorts of music and i`m a band member myself. well, sports is an other thing. ì`m a fussball/soccer lover. I`ve been playing on a minor team for ages and i support FC. Schalke 04 by heart, as a native gelsenkirchener there is no choice. besides soccer, i like running , using my bike and spend a lot of time outdoors if possible. since two years i live in düsseldorf, the capital of the state nordrhein westfalen. it`s a lovely place at the river rhine , with lots of art and culture and a big japanese community. a place well worth living. oh i almost forgot that I like tv series like sopranos, treme, breaking bad etc., well to describe my guest qualities, i guess I am a reliable, easy going interested guest. so that`s a little description of myself.
