I'm into film, TV, art and storytelling. I prefer doing sports to watching it (I sometimes watch Soccer socially though). Originally from Germany, I've studied here, in the UK and the US. Ever since, I miss the Anglo-American culture - and I'd also like to get to know many other cultures (Israel and Japan are on the top of my list for vacations in the near future).
Making TV and films, writing, researching, teaching some times.
Best movies recently: Gravity, Only Lovers Left Alive, Her.
Right now I am reading Wizard and Glass, The Name of the King, and Proust.
I'm interested in loads of different things and read about them in books and on blogs - some of them awesome and stupid but also stuff like macroeconomics, philosophy or human rights
I love good food and cooking with friends - Indian curries, pasta, fish, pies, burgers are some favourites.
Favourite TV: The Wire, Fringe, Sopranos, The Simpsons, Firefly, Buffy, Lars von Trier's Kingdom Hospital (anyone?), Twin Peaks, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad ...
Favourite music: Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, The National, The Smiths, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground etc etc - also classical, opera (I worked as Assistant director at the opera)
