I am excited about contributing to humanity getting its act together and want to use this site to collect myself. Humanism has come far in little time. If we play our cards right, the future will be buzzing with unfathomably rich experiences. I hope to make that even more probable.
What I am up to
As of 2021, I’m working to improve international risk governance.
From 2015 to 2020, I helped build up the Swiss EA ecosystem and attempted to understand human potential, including my own. Before that, I failed to sustain motivation for an undergrad in international relations; did a gap year as an au pair and snowboard instructor; grew (up) in Germany, with a 1-year stint in Tennessee; did many sports and played all sorts of games.
When not working, I enjoy time with loved ones, analyzing matter(s), exploring boundaries, improving structures, lifting weights, mixing music, documenting reflections, art, food, and dance.
How I ended up here
In my last year of high school, my nose for naïve moral superiority and social differentiation, paired with the desire to eat healthier, made me go vegan. Investigating animal sentience, it dawned on me that I could leverage my privilege for better things than climbing local social status ladders. Seeking friends with shared motivations, I encountered effective altruism (EA) in late 2013. Many rabbit holes later, I decided to dedicate my career to the wellbeing of future generations.
