I want to enable people to improve their media consumption. I think everyone needs some slower reflection in their everyday life.

Who is your target group?
Curious, intelligent people who care about the world.

What/who is your inspiration?
Obsession, my brother, the Castle, courageous / authentic people, great writers.

How do you celebrate?
