    arts, meditation, tantra, intentional communities, ecovillages, sustainability, transformative learning, personal development, bodywork/somatics, queer culture, integral theory/We-Space practices.
    Since I do not have many references in here yet, you might want to check some references on my couchsurfing profile:

  • What else ...

    I hold university degrees in arts (sculpture/installation/performance) and and also communication science (interpersonal communication). The past 10 years I regularly attended professional trainings and seminars to continually support my inner development (from meditation to Emergent Dialogue, to family constellations, tantric massage, Reiki, shamanic healing circles, performative artistic approaches for individual/social/global development, etc..). I facilitated workshops for mindful encounters/purpose work/Emergent Dialogue/tantric massage, and love to overlap these fields with each other and also include them in transformative events and immersive/interactive performances.
    This performative work has lead me to work in many interesting places all over the world. I had a side job as a prop assistant in a State Opera House in Austria for a couple of years, so in general I can offer different experiences in artistic surroundings.
    Apart from the artsy field I am co-founder of - A startup company and social sculpture, introducing strange objects as serious training devices to the football world - with the intention to establish FairTrade on the sports goods market. During the years when I was still CEO there, I could collect some experience around social entrepreneurship, like investor pitching, project management, writing business plans, applications and reports for project fundings, methods for impact measurement, etc..
    And one more practical thing, if necessary: I know how to handle a van with a looong trailer (longer than the van, carrying 25 bycicles) on very very narrow streets. That's a skill from the time when I was working as a support driver for bycicle tours in Italy.
