Possibilites Are Endless

The journey never ends

It is 1983, a year when TV only had a handful of channels and the Internet didn't exist yet. Globalization happened at a much lower level and China wasn't a super power by any stretch of the imagination. During these simpler times I was born to a German father and Thai mother in the city of Nuremberg, Germany.

During my upbringing I was shaped by an ugly divorce of my parents and the constant feeling that I was ever so slightly different to my blond and blue eyed friends.

Thanks to my Thai mother I was very good at understanding foreigners who only spoke a few words of German since I had to understand them anyway. And my dad taught me how to be generous and enjoy life, even when times are dark and hopeless.

Both are not in my life anymore. My dad died when I was 21 years old and my mother is not allowed to live in Germany anymore. She's been exiled to live in Thailand. A country I have never been to as of my 39th life year.

The uncertain and unusual situations my parents put me into made me highly flexible when dealing with new circumstances and environments. I'm open to the unknown and nothing excites me more than to learn a new skill.

This website acts as a platform to all the different projects I started in my life. It's by no means complete, but it shall give you a general idea of who I am and what I do.

Hopefully this platform will be helpful to you in one way or another.

Thank you for visiting this website.
