Describe yourself in a few sentences!

I believe to be quite a generous and open-minded person, always observing things around and questioning people. I like to make correspondences between things, where life is a like a complete artwork, the Gestamtkuntswerk in german. It’s something I studied when I was young in art history classes. It has never left me since. It’s about mixing different forms of art with life to form a whole, very utopian obviously but searching for this in my daily life is a good way to fight the routine. It’s very much applicable in the wine world where you have many correspondences to make with food, art and people of course.
