My name is Chris Pimmer.
For 11 years I have studied linguistics, economics, psychology, music science and computer programming at the University of Hamburg in Germany.
I speak four languages: Portuguese, Spanish, English and of course my native tongue of German
I have played the Piano since 1990 (mostly things like pop, I love me some Billy Joel).
I am also an ok chess player.
Ever since my late teens I have been into reading and learning, but I noticed that my learning would work a little different than that of the institutions I studied at. I have dedicated myself to the art of learning and bringing it all together to be a more complete person.
I have lived and studied in Recife, Brazil in 2006 at the University Federal de Pernambuco: UFPE. During that time I lived in a martial arts academy where I trained in capoeira. I have also played high-level basketball for over a decade. Most recently I spent six months living in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, in an attempt to broaden my horizons. I have spent time in quite a few countries learning from different teachers and masters acquiring skills that aren’t taught at traditional schools and universities.
In the past I founded a small record label where we published a couple albums and music videos (our main artists name is CAZINO) and helped cofound the first Warehouse Gym in Hamburg. Back when the internet was still relatively new, I taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP as well as graphic design to create an online presence for small businesses.
For 11 years I have been personally mentoring some young students on many subjects, such as basketball, philosophy, decision making amongst others and recently I have opened a mentoring and teaching service to a wider audience where I created online courses with over 2000 students enrolled.
I am very excited to be part of the Run It Once community and I look forward to engaging with many of you.
I also offer personal coaching in subjects such as learning strategies, psychology, mindset, and philosophy and how those can be applied to your life.
I have a holistic approach to life where nothing works in isolation but everything is influenced by each other. As Charlie Munger would say “Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts.”
