Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm an import from Germany, and I'm exploring the breath-taking
nature of this great country that has so many little, untouched
gems to offer.
I would describe myself as fairly laid back. I like to be surprised
by life, but can be very ambitious once I have made plans and set a
goal I want to achieve. Right now, I'm training for a new PB over
5k (last chance before being too old ;-)), want to cross the Alps
by bike, and, obviously, meet that someone special. So let's
Good thing about being from Germany is that I could easily travel
to other countries and learnt to appreciate other cultures. So I'm
looking forward to where life takes me next.
I find that between my work and my active lifestyle I don't get
much of a chance to meet fun new people. I signed up here for a
chance to break that cycle.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A while back I spent a year in France working in a shelter for
homeless people, and enjoying Southern France. I hope to vacation
there more often.
After finishing college in Germany, I moved here for graduate work.
I can imagine staying in academia after that, but haven't fully
made my mind yet, and it will depend on the job offers (hopefully,
there'll be some...). Besides my work I love to go running, I like
biking in the summer and have tried cross-country skiing in the
I like to relax from studying while playing the piano. During the
semester I also enjoy attending some of the classical concerts,
which I have learnt to appreciate more and more over the years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
growing red hair, obviously ;-)
On a more serious note, I don't have any special powers, but think
that I have some all-round skills.
I also think that I'm a good listener and typically think twice
before doing something. Wait, on a second thought, maybe not such a
good listener, or maybe I am...

observe things first before acting.

Here are a few of my favorites, but I'm eager to add more to my
Books: Calvin and Hobbes, To Kill a Mockingbird, Norwegian Wood,
Journey to the end of the night, Buddenbrooks
Music: Chvrches, La rue Ketanou (and some other French bands),
TV: My all time favorite TV show is the BBC show Coupling. It's
like a British Friends if you can imagine that.
Movies I really enjoyed watching: Straight Story, Stranger Than
Fiction, Priceless, Bicycle Thieves, ...
Food: I typically prefer cooking at home than going out. I like
Italian food and am fond of freshly baked German-style bread (have
tried it a bit myself). Oatmeal with fresh fruits is probably my
favorite breakfast. I rarely cook meat, but like to have it when
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could never do without:
Sheet music, Stories and a Stonishing Scenery,...
Bikes, Books and Bewilderment

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

love the Netherlands in that respect.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home catching up on some research, or out for a concert or play.
