Short: Meet the only German on this planet not interested in beer and sausage. I do embrace the German sarcastic, dry humor, am a road trip addict, heavy metal fan and enjoy suicidal bike rides in NYC.
Long: Hypothetically Cast Away - Skills & Interests
If I were to be stranded on a lonely island (which deep down I wish for) I would most likely be the person attempting to design and build the nicest shelter, possibly a treehouse if I have help. Our clothing would be the most fashionable, knitted or crocheted with sticks out of braided strands of grass or other materials that work. I would accept hypothermia over a sloppy shelter or crappy clothing until it comes out the way I envisioned. Clearly not because I care what others think but because of my inner urge to create something good that fulfills its purpose and satisfies my love for detail.
After that, I would be involved in creating our own vegetable garden, build a cute coop for the wild island chicken we would catch and eat honey from our own bees (Given somebody knows how to keep them)
To pass the time, I would need to find the right materials in order to sketch my surroundings on a daily basis and eventually bind my own island sketch book. Moreover, we would hike the island every now and then to explore our new home and go for a swim when we feel like it. Sadly, building a bike is most likely not an option, but maybe we find a horse and can learn how to ride it.
Eventually, we would get rescued, floating on a make shift boat that was probably about to fall apart. But that's not the end of it. I would launch a campaign telling our story. For our website I would create videos and animations with background information and interviews. Of course, we will also be active on social media - not Twitter though. You can also buy my sketches online, which naturally stayed unharmed after the traumatic boat ride.
Hell, while we are at it we could even open our own restaurant where the chef I was stranded with creates food just the way we had it on the island. I will handletter an appropriate logo for us, design print material like the menu, do our food,- interior,- and employee-photography and everything else that is needed from a design point of view...
Even though the event of me being on a lonely island will most likely never happen, everything written in bold is something I do enjoy or want to do in the future.
[DISCLAIMER: If I would really find myself on a lonely island, above actions and priorities will most likely be different]
