What do you do and why do you do it?

I'm an Artist, Art dealer, and Art Consultant. Because I love art, I guess. I work closely with artists helping them develop a thriving career. I Assist collectors with their new purchases and organize exhibitions to connect both parties.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Wilco - Sky Blue Sky and Beck - Sea of Changes, best heartbreak albums ever.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Not much of a tv person.

Name some spots in Berlin that are good for a Tinder date.

There is this hidden riverfront spot just in front of the Universal building. I actually made out with my first Berlin lady there. Berlin has a lot of very cool riverside spots, very good for long talks, but only during summer.

Who’s your hero and where in Berlin would you take them out for a serious hang?

Kanye West, for sure. Probably to some super secret warehouse party or private art exhibition at some rooftop penthouse.

Humana, an amazing second hand shop. Thinks of five stories full of exotic clothes.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Matrix. Tourist trap in the shape of a club.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Berlin and where did you get it?

Train station Kebab, run from it.

Zero Stress Pizza, super low profile. But the best pizza in town.

Nah, Berlin is cheap. No need to do unnecessary fancy stuff.

What restaurant in Berlin looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

Sahara Imbiss. Long live the African falafel!
