For me, this is the hardest part of the website to write. How to tell you who I am, what I do, and why you should browse through my content?
Most bios read like ads that are meant to make you buy stuff. But it feels wrong to write something like this about myself on my website. That does not mean I am unhappy if you book me for a job, come to a gig or buy something. I just dislike writing it.
As you are already here, you either know me, stumbled across the page via a search engine or a link somewhere in the depth of the world wide web. If you are not randomly clicking through links, you might be interested in dance, music, movies, storytelling, or a freelance artist’s life. This is who I am: I dance, create videos, try to make music and love to tell stories – with whatever means I have at hand. On the blog, I show my work, teach what I learn along the way and share my experiences with the business of art.
I also believe that people are not meant to work in meaningless jobs for the most significant part of their lives. With “meaningless” to be defined by everyone themselves. But amassing money for someone else with products or services that mean nothing to you is definitely at the centre of meaninglessness for me. It leads to soulless days that accumulate into a soulless life that leaves us empty and unfulfilled.
I think everyone can add value to the stories of his fellow humans and should be able to make a living by doing so. It’s not easy and a hustle, but it is also our best shot at living a life we love. As I am working my way back into being a full-time artist again (I stopped travelling with dancing to be around after the birth of our daughter), I will share my knowledge and experiences with everyone eager to leave a regular 9-5 to follow his own path.
