- Do you practice any sports or have you practiced some? What is your fave sport?
Damn! We´re starting with my weak point! Nope! I´m not a sportive guy at all. Though I love to play Frisbee in the summer or riding my bike in an easygoing way, I’m more a viewer than actor.
I´ll possibly never grow fat, so that´s why you won´t see me punishing myself by running or weight lifting. In the past I loved to play X-Golf (Crossgolf) but this was more fun than a sport, because we drank beer while searching for astrayed balls.
- What kind of music do you listen to?
The older I get the more I do like jazz in any form. But before judging me, this is only a flavor in a mixture of ingredients like Dub, Roots Reggae, Postrock, Punkrock and electronic music in common.
- Do you go to the disco or to concerts?
Corresponding to my taste in music I´m more a fan of concerts than discos. Disco is something you´re going to if you´re a single and want to be seen, while dancing to music played from a laptop. Concerts are often more energetic and touching than an evening in a club. As Bob Marley said: “When the music hits you, you feel no pain.” But you will definitely feel the music when dancing to a live band or good SoundSystem.
- What kind of films do you like? What is the last film you’ve seen (Cinema or TV)?
I´m very interested in the way films are made from its technical or directory point of view, and that´s why independent productions and short films are my favorites. It takes a lot to produce a short story which is catchy and not predictable. As my last movie was a total disgrace for every cineaste (It’s been“Movie 43”) I`ll proclaim: my last movie was “Dicke Mädchen” A german € 500,- low budget production which earned lots of prices. A funny and surprising film about two men who discover bit by bit, that they are falling in love with each other. This was quite a fun.
- What kind of books do you read? Is there a book you would recommend?
Similar to my love for short film, I love short books or better to say: Short stories. I´m only reading books while traveling or in my holidays. I´m not quite sure if one of my favorite writers were translated into French but I´d recommend stories from “Ephraim Kishon” to everyone who loves sarcastic and Jewish humor.
- Do you cook and what is your favorite dish?
Hm… Cooking is special… If you´d ask some of my flat mates: I´m not cooking. But yes! I love cooking, when there´s enough time and I have a nice recipe. My favorite dish is always something with pasta in any way. But this is not a must.
- What are your top 3 favorite clothing/shoe brands?
Oh! Advertising! But without my Skechers “ZINGERS MEANDER 2” I´m nothing. I´ve bought my 4th pair of them since I ruined my first pair and I`ll always return, as they aren´t too expensive but suitable and good looking . My second choice is the good old Doc Marten’s boot. But I´m not a big fan of a special brand in common.
- Is there anything you haven’t done yet and you would like to try?
Of course! Living an easy life without working for a company but for myself is always a goal.. But don´t tell this our bosses ;)
- Is there anything particular we should know about you like you like knitting for ex? Or any lifestyle stuff or secret that no one knows about (yet)?
I´ll never grow up!
- Do you have animals?
Hopefully not! But I had a lot of hamsters when I was a kid and sold their babies to pet shops which possibly fed their snakes with them. But they made good prices in the end.
- Are you engaged into a political, animal protection, children association?
I´m politically interested but not engaged yet. I´m supporting alternative energies even if it´s a bit more expensive, I´m doing a own broadcast at a local radio station association and I´ve always been a friend of benefiz concerts, when I was playing in bands. Hopefully this is enough to keep me away from hell.
- Any interest into graphic design / Photography / Street-art or any other art (Sculpture …)
As I said, I´m a fan of camera stuff… This includes being a big fan of Lomography and taking pictures in the old fashioned way with my old Practica BCA / B100
- What do you like at laFraise and why do you enjoy working there?
At first I love seeing those many creative designs and ideas, also from the past. This is a huge pool of creativity. Secondly I love the product itself and that people from different countries love it, that´s a big factor. And in the end, I do like the challenge which I took over, nearly a year ago and it´s not going to get boring within the next months, as far as I can see.
- What is your role/job at laFraise?
Currently I´m full responsible for everything around our contest and our shop which is linked directly to a product. I start from curating the contest, doing the contract stuff, answering to questions from our designers, planning the releases and being up to date with everything around our product range. For some I´m the a non impregnable doorman, for some a bearer of glad tidings. For some the German dude and for only a few, hopefully a nice colleague.
