I am from Germany but living in Sweden, where I currently work on my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction. I am exploring how cultural and social factors influence our everyday use of technology. So I would always describe myself as a very geeky anthropologist.
On the picture you can see me at a traditional Swedish midsummer celebration. Yes, thats what they have at IKEA, just with less emphasis on furniture.
Besides participating in native rituals I am traveling a lot around Europe, to visit friends, for conferences or just for fun. I am always interested in people and when I am traveling I rather just walk around and watch what is going on, instead of just checking of tourist attractions.
