I am 49 years old and I'm from Germany, but since 1991 I live in Spain, where I work as a full professor for German Language and Literature at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Ciudad Real). I love literature and music, especially live music (pop, rock, jazz, folk), and whenever I find the time I love to travel around to see concerts. I'm also interested in art and architecture, and I enjoy visiting museums, art collections and galleries. I am a quiet person but I enjoy communicating: I love to talk to people, understanding and respect is very important for me. I love to be with my wife, my family and my friends. And I love my job. For relax, my wife and me, we love to stay at home or having dinner with our friends, and on holidays we love to go to the seaside, have a walk on the beach, and just talk and enjoy being together.
