Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a PhD student in cultural anthropology
and kind of a mixed
bag. I like to go out with my friends on weekends, but am just as
happy hanging out doing something low key. I like to be romantic,
go out with someone I like, wine and dine, cuddle up with a movie.
I'm also serious about my work/school and passionate about my
I tend to be the guy at the party telling stories to a crowd,
making people laugh. I'm definitely not afraid of being silly. I
love to cook, play music, and travel.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in the process of writing my dissertation about Berlin (where I
was living last year) and the plan is to give it a shot in the
academic job market and write books, but could see myself going to

Most of my likes are probably somewhat atypical. I read mostly
non-fiction - I love my work and I spend a lot of my day reading
things published on related issues. I'm willing to mix it up
though, if you have any good recommendations.
Gunther Grass, Amitav Ghosh, Ishiguro...
For music, I listen to a bit of everything. The one out of the
ordinary thing here is probably that I'm really into blues - I'm a
blues guitar player.
As for food - well, I'm a foodie. I love to cook, experiment and
eat - both at home with friends or out at great restaurants. I love
to find new places to eat and new kinds of cuisine. I enjoy a good
bottle of wine and Cognac. I like to experiment with food and cook
for my friends and family whenever I have the chance.

People. I'm fascinated by people, how they think, believe, love,
act, etc. That's really the driving force behind my professional
life, but it applies to my regular life as well.
I'm from a close family so I talk to them a lot - especially my
parents and my Grandma.
On a typical Friday night I am

probably with my friends doing something low-key, maybe a party
locally or a bar. During the semester, I'm probably working on
readings, or writing. Or sitting with my guitar, clearing my mind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make up huge elaborate stories in my head when I'm trying to fall
asleep. I have no idea why, but I've done it my whole life.
Something tells me, though, that my mind is working too hard and it
actually slows down the whole "falling asleep" process.
