About Me


To find activities and people to hang out with.


Hi, I have a PhD in Sociology and work in customer service in Berlin.


Harm-reduction. Basically, I believe that anything that is clearly harmful to oneself or others should be avoided, but I rely on a human-rights-based framework not religious dogma.
