    Description

    About my place:
    I live in an older house bought by my grandfather 15 km outside of Vienna, Austria in a small community called Kritzendorf next to the Danube. There is a large garden in need of love. There's a crazy cat called Rumi who wants to be loved too. The house could use some light repairs and the windows could always be cleaner!

    About me:
    My primary focus in life is on developing consciousness. I practice this in private and work with more and more clarity. I seek depth in conversation and relationships. I work as consultant to create spaces for accessing collective intelligence for a more sustainable future. I have lived in Paraguay (teaching), UK (engineering, eco buildings) , India (NGO), Sweden (Masters), and Austria and speak German, English, Spanish and a fair bit of rusty French.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I've worked and lived in South America for a year at age 18 - my best experience. I have lived in the UK for 11 years. India 6 months... I come from a Viennese family steeped in classical music. I will happily show you around the city and neighbourhood, take you to concerts or explore the local forest. I love cooking - local and foreign foods.

    gardening: I care about / am interested in organic, permaculture, natural farming, composting. I plant a few vegetables and have a few fruit trees. I am planning to build a small straw bale house - experience is welcome. Note: the horses in my garden come every now and then to "cut the grass" :-) they come from a stable in the neighborhood .

    house work and fixing: there's always stuff to do. there's lots of old double windows to clean, fix stone terrace, clean rain gutters, create rain water harvesting system.

    Computers/IT: I do a bit of website development (WordPress) and also am building a secure collaboration server for work. Your expertise is appreciated if you want to contribute.

    pets: if you love cats you will do just fine with my temperamental cat rumi. :)

    25min to Vienna with concerts, museums, etc.

    I keep to myself and am in an open relationship. I get excited about people and can have long conversations until late into the night... or do very spontaneous wild camping... or movie marathons...

    decent unlimited internet (LTE) - though at times it is a bit tempramental. i work mostly online on teleconferences and - typically - it is more than fine. there is a cafe 100m away with reasonable internet when things go wrong.
