My self-summary
I was born and raised in Switzerland. Educated at Cambridge (UK). Lived since in England, France, Canada, and India. I now live between Geneva and London.

Studied philosophy, now working in finance / real estate.

I love travelling, meeting people with a sparkling mind, and living life intensely.

Also love new adventures and experiences. Latest fun challenge - just back from a sailing race from Qingdao (China) to San Francisco.

Do good looks matter? Of course, but in the end, as beauty goes away, what only and really matters is to have a good character and an interesting personality.

PS:
Written communication is a great way to get to know someone on a more meaningful level. However, the first eye contact and magic is missing. I believe in real meeting.

I find a short skype call much more meaningful than a 1 month communication here. Afer 10min, one can know for sure if there is no chemistry. And if there is, we can take from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to learn something new everyday.
Find meaning. Create meaning.
Just back from a 3 weeks holiday in the stans countries - fascinating places!

If I am willing to admit, it's not really private, is it?
