I am a localization manager/translator and intercultural consultant living in Berlin (Germany), passionate about languages, cultures, diversity management, dancing and good movies.  

Interested in intercultural communication and/or diversity management? In the mood for a Tandem-partner or looking for someone willing to learn Spanish with you? Desperately seeking an enthusiastic dance partner for salsa, bachata, swing or charleston?
Hoping to find a blogging buddy willing to inspire and motivate you?

Just drop me a line for a coffee. I am always thankful for the chance to get to know interesting and fascinating people like you.

I love Dorothy Parker. And Louisa May Alcott. And Elizabeth Barrett Browning. And...
And it's funny, considering that they are all in Famous Literary Drunks & Addicts gallery, and that people worldwide love and read books written by drunks and addicts... namely people they would never get in touch with in real life.
