ebullient polymath

20 seconds

I suffer from the polymath syndrome, meaning I have many interests and not one vocation. I get very enthusiastic about new projects and tend to try optimizing everything I do.

I have travelled and blogged a year in South-East Asia, launched my side-business Life Under Control, published a Street Art Guide and try to live as environmentally-friendly as I can.

Originally from Switzerland, I now live in Berlin with my partner Robin.
