The human being

I am Benjamin Piwko, but I don't hear. Since I was eight months old, my world has been still.
Nevertheless, we can talk. I speak and read lips. I perceive your body: taste, feel, smell, and above all see. I hear with my eyes.
I observe your responses, your facial expressions, your gestures. The body is my language, making me a listener. I will unite two worlds! Silence does not obstruct my path, but the hearing world does. But silence has shaped me: into a fighter!I am an actor, entertainer, Cine Fight choreographer, motivational speaker, author, professional athlete, and ambassador. I will eliminate barriers, in front of the camera or in the dojo. In life, you always have a choice!

Please feel free to reach out to me via email if you have any interest or inquiries regarding this matter. I kindly request your attention and would greatly appreciate your correspondence.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
