About me & my work:

I'm an exploreress, younger sister, North European, confuser-sense-maker, ethnographer, sharer, midnight doodler and sound addict. I'm lucky to work with friends, who are hopeful and driven enough to try and improve the way we live and work on this planet. Some of our projects are well received, which makes it even more fun. Our project seems to morph into a kind of operating system for collaborative innovation and storytelling. I have a weak spot for post-socialist East Germany. It feels like an accidental social avantgarde, because they had to deal with frugal innovation and rely on peer support systems for decades before the western world decided they need exactly these skills now. But Easterners are also just wonderful because they reward unpretentious ability instead of bling.
