Other Interests

  • I’m a language nerd. I took courses (and forgot most of it all too fast again due to a lack of time and practice) in Maori, Spanish and Czech and am living in the illusion of some day reviving that knowledge by spending more time in the respective countries.
  • I have been part of several choirs, currently it’s the Berlin based jazz choir jazzomat (always looking for male vocalists!)
  • I love good food, ideally prepared and consumed with friends (not in the cannibalistic interpretation).
