If I was president for a day I would: Since I believe that environmental issues are our most important challenge I would have distributed a yearly CO ² quota that everyone had to administer.

The best thing about beeing outdoors: Fresh air, the feeling of freedom and unlimited challenges.

I never travel without: Ski boot dryer and slippers.

My motto: Always do everything entirely, not partially.

Something you didn’t know about me:  I have been a bass player and singer in a punkrock band called ”Raegers in the night”.
