About me
  • Part-time writer (fantasy, stories with a twist, short stories, poems) in German & English
  • Full-time connoisseur of the good life
  • Very much into
    • making music (keyboard, piano, guitar, singing)
    • listening to music (anything from classical music to perfect pop to dubstep)
      Fave bands: 10,000 Maniacs, ABBA, Air, Pet Shop Boys (the old stuff), Queen, RHCP, Smashing Pumpkins
      Fave artists: Jean-Michel Jarre, Amy Winehouse
      My three albums for the proverbial remote island:

      • 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe
      • ABBA - ABBA Gold
      • Air - Moon Safari

      Honorable mentions:

      • Pet Shop Boys - Behaviour
      • Gorillaz - Plastic Beach
    • sports (cycling, table tennis, volleyball)
    • photography (landscape, portrait, nude)
    • reading (Neal Stephenson, David Foster Wallace, Douglas Adams)
  • Made it through "Infinite Jest" but not "Finnegan's Wake". Love "Snow Crash" like crazy.
  • Love a good translation challenge (looking at you, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nik Kershaw!).
  • Also understand Dutch, Italian and some Spanish, but am not fluent in speaking.
  • 1000th translation "No Diggity" dedicated to J.K.
