About Me

Hello world! Can't wait to get in touch with you!

Just some facts about me: I'm German and I live in the city of Muenster/Westphalia. I'm a Film Festival Director and work in other film and culture related fields too. In my free time I love to hang out with friends, travel the world, read, watch TV or movies and I love going to a Pub Quiz aka Trivia Night once a week. I even host one once a month.

Things that I'm into:

sports (in general). lighthouses. bridges. dogs. orcas. armadillos. squirrels. photography (especially b/w or sepia). old Hollywood movies (my favorite actor is James Stewart). celebrities in general. food and drinks. water (islands, oceans, beaches). books. writing. tasteful nude pictures of female bodies (especially b/w or sepia). everything hygge. petrol blue (as a color).

Things I don't like: clowns.

And most important: I will ALWAYS send. I have never and will never flake. If any item/package hasn't arrived please let me know and give me the chance to resend before rating. And please be patient... due to the Covid craziness it might take a tiny bit longer for stuff to arrive.

Languages: German and English. En ik kan een beetje Nederlands verstaan.

Favorite Music

Classic Rock, Grunge, Alternative, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal... and Country.

Favorite Books

So many books I could mention. Here's a list of authors I like: Stephen King, Justin Cronin, Matt Ruff, Toni Morrison, Joel Dicker, André Aciman, Armistead Maupin, J.R.R. Tolkien, G.R.R. Martin, Susanna Clarke, John Irving and so many more...

Favorite Movies

I've watched a fair amount of movies, professionally and in my free time. I love Old Hollywood movies like The Philadelphia Story - Now, Voyager - It Happend One Night - His Girl Friday - All That Heaven Allows, An Affair To Remember... But I'm also into movies like the Lord Of The Rings trilogy - American History X - Batman Begins - Star Wars - Call Me By Your Name - Winter's Bone - Drive - Dogville - Parasite - The Florida Project and many, many more. And here are some documentaries I really like... It Might Get Loud - The Dixie Chicks: Shut Up & Sing - Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's - I Am Not Your Negro - Senna - The Biggest Little Farm...

Favorite Television

True Blood, Friends, This Is Us, The Handmaid's Tale, Dexter, Lost, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, The Affair, Californication, Game Of Thrones, Nashville, 2 Broke Girls, The L Word, Sherlock, Sons Of Anarchy, UnREAL and many more.

Favorite Food

I'm not into chocolate... what's wrong with me? But I do love marshmallows - the best ones I've tasted so far are Barú from Belgium (milk chocolate covered), The Mallows from Denmark (love their Summer Berry and Lemon flavors and even the ones with chocolate are great) and Smashmallow from the US (love their Cinnamon Churro and Toasted Vanilla).

Besides that I love veggies! And ice cream. And nuts.
