Me, Myself & I

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.

From Tesla with love: Jane Brox's book about artificial light

A friend of mine suggests me a new book for my wishlist and I want to do the same with you:

Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light (Hardcover)
by Jane Brox
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010
368 pp., ISBN 978-0547055275

If you want to know something more about electricity, artificial light, home lighting, Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla, it's the book for you.
I consider Tesla a really incredible 'character'. If you haven't already done so, watch The Prestige by Christopher Nolan! It's a great movie and Tesla is played by David Bowie.
