About

Lived in Germany and the UK, half-breed (German, Austrian, Scottish). Studied, worked in various educational functions during university. Then as an editor and product manager of computer/web design books.
So, what are my other interests?
I'm a sci-fi geek. Space: Above And Beyond and Farscape, as well as Alien(s), Star Wars are my favourites. For non-scifi related subjects like Bollywood or Asian doramas (mini series from Japan and Korea). I also love poetry, diving, riding motorbikes/horseback, reading and writing fiction, dancing, re-enactment, making costumes, sewing in general, and everything computer-related.
My favourite music is Independant, Rock, Industrial/Goth, Brit Pop and Classical Music. Additional, I'm a fan of the Japanese JPop band SMAP. But I also like *female* voices like Kate Bush.
In my every day life our dogs as well as our chickens and ducks take up a lot of my time as well as our farmhouse and garden.

Costuming

I love costumes, and I love vintage clothing. I have posed as a re-enactor at several events in different eras. My favourite is Regency, closely followed by Edwardian and 1930s/1940s. While I have been wearing 1930/40s repro for over a decade now, only recently I re-discovered an old flame from my time as a Goth, using different eras in every day clothing. #historybounding according to Morgan Donner.
