Profile

Physicists and journalists have one thing in common: They search for answers—and sometimes for the right question, too. I am a curious guy. That’s why I chose to study physics. I want to know how the world works, what’s possible today and what’s reality tomorrow. But—I have to admit—I also love listening to my own voice and there is no doubt that I am a real radio nerd. So it was that one day I found myself at the microphone.

I love music, fresh food and good cappuccino. And people who believe in what they do. People who are trying to make the world a better place every day—if only little by little. (Huge respect for those who actually succeed.) I enjoy meeting new people while travelling because when I do, I learn more about the world and about myself, I get new perspectives. I always try to stay hungry for knowledge. On this page I have summarized what I have learned so far and how good I am at those things. The colorful diagrams below are based on my self assessment and not necessarily objective. 😉
