I’m a kind-hearted, confident, outgoing and self-sufficient person, but I’m also a dreamer with drive and ambition.
I did my studies (engineering & biology) at the University of Texas. Austin will always hold a special place it my heart; it’s home to Barton Springs, SXSW & 6th Street. In addition to Texas, I have lived in Stockholm and Zürich.
I work as a consultant in the Zürich area. In my work, I have travelled all over the world. I enjoy throwing myself into a completely new place that I’ve never seen before. Such experiences teach me not just about the world, but also about myself.
I enjoy running, mountain biking, and climbing. In the winter, I go skiing whenever the snow is good. Recently I have also done a bit of ski touring. I love trekking up a mountain and skiing down an untouched slope of powder snow. I go rowing on Lake Zürich.
I enjoy dancing—particularly salsa & swing. I would like to learn tango.
I love spending time in the outdoors, but I also enjoy living close to the city with its pulse of activity. I’m a bit torn between the energy of city life and a the tranquility and splendor of life in nature.
I’m not religious, but I do enjoy conversation about philosophy and the deep, unfathomable questions of life. I find politics fascinating too. I have strong opinions, but I try to be open and respectful of others’ views.
Laughter comes easily to me, and I have a somewhat dry sense of humor. Life is too short to take it seriously all the time.
