Well, hello there! Grüß Gott! I am called Tony Baiz. I hail from Southern California, and I am currently working on my Master’s here at NYU in Humanities and Social Thought (emphasis European Politics).I came to New York for the incredible opportunity to study at an erudite university like NYU, as well as to get the privilege to live in this extraordinary metropolitan, where in one instant I could feel like I’m in a neighborhood in Shanghai, enjoying a delightful meal, to the next moment, being in a lively soirée in a Berlin apartment. Other than my ongoing intrigue with the German culture, what attracted me most to working at the Deutsches Haus was researching and discovering the eclectic assortment of events that take place here.These events range from topics in my field of interest, to German art, music, film, and literature; a truly genuine and unique German cultural enclave, that is wonderful to discover, in the already esoteric Greenwich Village. Working at the front desk at the Deutsches Haus has been a highly positive experience. Meeting so many different people from Germany, and the world has been a real treat, and there often seem to be a lot of interesting things that occur at DH that makes working here always interesting. Our staff is always helpful, friendly and easy going to work with, which makes the work environment pleasant. While in New York I hope to travel along the eastern seaboard, and when there is money and time, pay another visit to Germany!
