Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Happy-minded, adventurous, hugging, childishly curious, sarcastic,
chocolate-addicted, travel-soul, proud, impatient, nerdy,
straight-forward, sapiosexual, funny, dreamy, passionate,
idealistic, boring, ecologically aware, crazy, philosophic – the
exceptionally average kind of a normal weirdo
I’m totally driven by success and glory!
Success and glory = being able to walk through life with a smile on
your face every day; being who you want to be, doing what’ll assure
you an amazing feeling of contentment and peace of mind by the time
My ideal day includes any of the following: a sunrise surf, dive,
or snorkel; the adrenalin-rush that comes from flying down a
mountain on 1 or 2 boards, a horseback-riding- or
Capoeira-initiated serotonin burst, spending some peaceful time
with myself and some fun time with the rays of sun in my life: my
family and friends; being with the person who can turn the average
chat into an amazing discussion, who I’ll laugh tears with, and
who’d neither say no to a nice eve at home with a good movie and
wine nor to a spontaneous parashoot.
On my absolute “should-be-done-to-have-lived-an-awesome-life” list:
hold my own child; seeing the work I spend every day on have the
effects I wish for; encounter true love and have it love me back;
find myself faced eye to eye with a whale; be trained in the
secrets of meditation in a Buddhist monasterie; surf a tunnel; dive
Darwin and Wolf; see an awakening in peoples conscience for the
need to protect the natural world that we’re part of and not on top
of, AND have everybody find the sufficient will power to actually
do something about what’s going wrong; see the auroras; experience
the magic of Africa; learn how to heard cattle from horseback on a
huge outdoor farm.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Travel! To distant places; to my inner self; to that unknown but
surely amazing place, and sometimes without no destination at all
in mind – life’s a pretty damn awesome journey, and the freedom to
live and experience new cultures, mentalities, languages, ways of
being is an incredible gift we should use to broaden our
That one’s purely for the heart and mind. For the heart, mind, AND
to make a living, I’m doing my PhD investigating sharks and marine
mammals and figuring out how my work can best aid their
conservation and ensure their and in relation our future.
My other current big project is learning Dutch – so – among others
- persistent, patient and brutally honest tandem partners are most
welcome to drop me a line!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: The little prince is something my kids will definitely have
to listen to (also great for starting to learn a new language);
great authors are Sergio Bambaren, Paulo Coehlo, Khaled Hosseini,
Goethe, Shakespeare, Daniel Goleman, J.K. Rowling, …. I read a lot
from classics to technical books about biology, psychology,
music: many things - from B like Beatles and Ben Howard, to X like
Xavier Rudd... and a lot in between
I spend hardly any time watching tv
food: lots - I like to eat =)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my family, my friends, traveling, the sun, the feeling of water on
my skin, music
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
enjoying dinner and wine or some beers with friends, dancing, out
to a spontaneous camping trip, off to a little concert, playing
backgammon, …. depends on the mood

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are honest, intelligent, not too creepy ;), up for little and
big adventures and good conversations; some serious stuff and the
occasional naughtiness; if you have (and don’t mind) a great sense
of humor and some level of sarcasm; if you’re generally fond of the
idea of wading through knee-deep mud or cutting through bush in
some godforsaken wilderness that'll surely earn you some bonus
points (in this sense some sense of orientation from your side
would be great cuz I was born without and haven’t mastered the art
of directing by sun- and starlight yet)
Mentoring: I would love some mentoring in mastering the art of
opening a coconut without spilling the milk (no drill provided), in
learning to play the guitar and chess, building furniture from wood
myself, hold my breath for 3 minutes, in Español y Nederlands. I
can provide nice entertainment with some awesome, strange, unique
travel and couch surf stories, great advice on how to do
headstands, some mentoring in mastering the art of opening a
coconut without spilling the milk (drill provided), German, English
and some basic Spanish if we’re talking tandem partners.
Also give it a shot if you’re familiar with the feeling of the
impossibility of stopping an irrational and addictive laugh-flash
at the absolute most inappropriate moment – and you love it; and
finally, chances we’ll get along are much better if you think that
people that will take the difficult path cuz they want to follow
their (childhood) dreams are not stupid, but amazing (and much much
better if you're one of them ;))
