Can one realistically describe oneself? Well, let's start with some simple geographic facts:
In 2011, I moved from the beach in Barcelona to the snow of Montréal.
Before Barcelona, I spent a little time in Heidelberg. For the
four years before that, I had been bi-cycling through Paris, where I was working in a venerable research institute, which
had been founded on the science of properly cooking milk, among other
things. Before Paris, I already spent some months in
Heidelberg. Before that, I performed my biochemistry studies
in Leipzig - a very enjoyable
city in Eastern Germany.
My cradle cradled in Riesa on the river Elbe, which is not
too far away from Leipzig. Riesa is
far from a tourist attraction. That said, if you are Japanese, you
might have heard of it -- in 2001, Riesa hosted the world championship
in Sumo wrestling, cutting out cities like L.A. and Rio ;-)!
A page uncovering my personality is, certainly, supposed to
have a section like this:
