I was born to an italian mother and a spanish father in Germany. I am very much into languages and studied English, German, Spanish and Italian. I got my masters degree in English and German philology. I am also very much into sports. I love MTB and Basketball. I am a high school teacher. I am very much into the "real thing", love to stay with and learn about the place from local people. I love to learn from different cultures and I enjoy intercultural communication very much. I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I am a rather silent type of guy. My favorite books are non-fiction and adventure books. "20.000 leagues Under the Sea" from Jules Verne, however, is still my favorite "science fiction" book and Walt Disney's adaptation in 1954 is my favorite movie. I love things that make you aware of the fact that everything is possible. I love nature and my god is the sun. My attitude towards life: Positive. Things will come to an end sooner than we think. Therefore, I live today with curiosity and discernment and not tomorrow with regrets.
