About Me

Tasmin Hansmann is a queer storyteller, writer, poet and dreamer.

Her first two books „The Anatomy of Waves“ and „Welcome Home Dear Soul“ came out in 2021, her newest release „The Eloquence of Hurricanes“ was published in 2022. She loves to create things – photographs, videos, art, food and homes made out of words. She has a degree in Social & Cultural Anthropology from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and a passion for knowledge in a vast range of topics, including sustainability.

Her online pseudonym used to be Tasmetu – from the ancient Mesopotamian Tashmetum, goddess of sex and wisdom, who was also known as „The Lady Who Listens“ and the wife of Nabû, God of Writers.

Born and raised in Munich, Germany, she has lost her heart to the Azores Archipelago and is creating a life and community on Pico Island. Right now, she is renovating a traditional island house, homesteading & rewilding old cowpatches. Her story is a long one and you can find more of it on her YouTube channel or within her stories.

She is the founder of Azorean Stories, a passion project that highlights amazing people from the Portuguese island archipelago (which is currently on hold).

She is working as a freelance creative and is an active teacher on Skillshare. Her goal is to align her work 100% with climate and social justice.
