About me

Okay, you might ask: Who is that guy? Who the hell does he think he is?

Well, I am a tyrolean by birth who lives in the Netherlands or more accurately, Zeeland by choice. From the mountains to the sea. Looong story. Maybe I will tell you one time. I was born in 1979 and let you do the maths yourself.

I work a more or less normal office job for a dutch family business. I have known my ups and downs in life and so far managed to come out on top of it. Don't ask me how, I am still wondering myself.

While I strive to write regularly about my aspirations in minimalism and my attempts to achieve financial freedom, I have no further qualifications than going through life and writing about how I experience it and how I try to solve my problems. While I do have something akin to a Bachelor in business administration, but that does not help much.

Maybe you'll benefit from it, maybe you'll think "What a moron!". That is completely up to you.

Also, I declare any and all content on this blog as free and public domain. You are free to copy and spread anything you like. Attribution is appreciated, but not required. - A decision that might further your impression of me being a moron. The thing is, I don't like the way copyright is used today: by big corporations to crack down on the little guy and the freedom of expression.

Also, I will do nothing to monetize this blog. If you would like to show your appreciation and invite me for a coffee (or rather Earl Grey or Jasmine tea) then that is very much welcome and if you live too far away to do it personally, you can donate a few Euros, quid or bucks through this link:


I sincerely hope you enjoy your time reading this blog and if you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message. However, please forgive me if I am not able to reply immediately. Depending on how busy my life is it can take me a month or so to answer.
