My professional life (work, education, training) and some stories that changed my life to what I am today.
Since the age of 15 I knew I wanted to do "my thing" but for many years found it hard to get to the very point of WHAT exactly - except the idea of being a philosopher, laying on my bed the whole day and thinking smart thoughts (that then somehow should be turned into money ... still working on that one).
Workwise I found "my first real thing" in 1999 as I decided to go for entertainment in general and DJ:ing specifically.
- I set up Colognes first smoke free and alternative disco "TanzSpass" in 2000 (Bare foot boogie like) It´s still rocking
- In 2004 event comparing /presenting was added
- Since 1999 it must have been around one thousand various partys, see my DJ section for details goto DJ * Voice
- Presentation, i.e. to officially present Sweden in the field of tourism
My catalogue of "jobs for a living" is wide: newspaper man, hospital worker, bus driver, street market salesman ... I probably have forgotten some.
