AUGUST 1998: I dance for the first time for a youth dance project and can tell that I want to spend the rest of my life on stage.

AUGUST 1999: I start training as a legal clerk because I don't want to be dependent on anyone and want to earn my own money.

SEPTEMBER 2006: During the holidays I work on Usedom where I kiss a woman for the first time. I fall eternally in love. But we part before anything can happen. For the first time I think about changing something about my life in order to be happy.

JULY 2007: I invest 5,000 Euros in a risky game of chance.

AUGUST 2008: It worked. In one fell swoop I have 20,000 Euros. I decide to change my life. I resign and go self-employed. I train further as a dancer and meet Beatrice.

APRIL 2009: My love story with Beatrice begins. I am happy.

JANUARY 2010: For the first time I stand on stage as a performer in a project of my own – together with Beatrice of course. I am the happiest person in the world.

MARCH 2012: On 3rd March Dad dies overnight. The worst thing for me is that I couldn't say goodbye.

MARCH 2012: On 20th March my twin sister gives birth to her first child: Jonas. I secretly wish that there is a heaven from which my dad can see little Jonas grow up.

NOVEMBER 2012: I sing 'Frère Jacques' with my grandfather. Afterwards we smoke a cigarette from Moscow. At that moment I know it will be the last time I see granddad alive. I am happy that I had the chance to say goodbye.
