German, balding slowly, hopefully with grace. A carnival junkie, who, after studies in business in Mannheim and Paris, and European Politics and Policy at the LSE, is currently living in his hometown of Mainz, Germany, again. Worked for the Labour administration during a a research job at the House of Commons, but difficult to place in German party-political terms. Liberal in the true sense of the term. His political writing is mostly on <a href="http://fistfulofeuros.net">A Fistful of Euros</a> and on <a href="https://facebook.com/tobias.schwarz">facebook</a> these days. Occasional <a href="http://twitter.com/almostadiary">Twitter</a> user and <a href="http://soundcloud.com/tobischwarz">songwriter</a>. His personal blog is <a href="http://almostadiary.de>almost a diary. Even more links at <a href="http://about.me/tobias.schwarz">about me</a>.
