About me:

The expression of spontaneous joy because people learned something where I was helpful, are very enjoyable moments. That can be the little jump of an engineer on his chair or a happy face of a kid after a day on the kids' construction side I volunteered on.

Hiking and playing music are my biggest two hobbies. Playing music in a house music with 2 zithers and 2 violines. Sometimes my foldable zither joins me on a hike.
