About the author
Born and raised in suburbian Berlin, Germany I discovered my love for nature early in my life, despite, or maybe because of the little contact I had with it. As for almost every little boy, it was the love for dinosaurs that triggered my interest in all kind of animals, and the wonders of nature. And as I grew up, and my knowledge of things grew, the things I was interested in started shrinking away. Not my interest in itself, but the objects my curiosity was centered on, became smaller. That culminated, when my dad gave me my first microscope and I could finally reach beyond the constraints that limited my eyesight to well; the macroscopic world. And then I became a microbioloigst. It’s pretty much as plain as that. But the wonders I have seen and learned since still manage to catch my breath when I step back from my oculars and computer screens and take my time to wonder.
So I guess that’s what you could call me, The wonderer.
However, my life has more to it then only the minute things my job has to offer. Also time has left it’s traces, especially the medieval one. Oh and anthropology, ancient history, and so many other things that this amazing planet of ours has to offer.
So I would like to give a little quote here
“Death: Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom.”
