About me

My passion for agriculture started with my first wwoofing experiences in New Zealand. I did an internship in Israel and research for my theses in Panama and Uganda. I studied Agroecology in Sweden and Agroforestry in Wales after working for the NGO Navdanya in India and I worked for a Japanese NGO in Germany.

About me:
- The first adjective most people describe me with is "calm" and "peaceful"
- I am sensitive and therefore I like gentle people
- I'm an observer and listener in the first place and don't like being pushed to talk, but I can if I'm interested in the topic
- I can be indecisive or take a long time for decisions, either don't mind or help me to become better at decision-making ;)
- I don't believe in single truths or in having an opinion on everything... Nothing is black and white. I also don't like to give scientific reasons for each and everything. I trust my intuition.
- I love cycling and walking - please don't offer any rides to me if I can walk (unless I have luggage :) )
- I'm a vegan, I don't drink or smoke, I don't drink coffee
- I am a professed fruitoholic and tea-fetishist (both in the Western and Eastern sense ;))
- I was once told I was suffering from "orthorexia" as I avoid unhealthy foods ;) I don't think there's anything pathological about trying to eat healthy (that would be an oxymoron actually :D)

PHILOSOPHY

A life without love is a waste. “Should I look for spiritual love, or material, or physical love?”, don’t ask yourself this question. Discrimination leads to discrimination. Love doesn’t need any name, category or definition. Love is a world itself. Either you are in, at the center…either you are out, yearning.
~ Shams Tabrizi

"Be sincere, always more and more sincere. Nothing will happen. Try to be sincere and see what happens."
~ Swami Brahmdev

“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes."
