What is the noise you are trying to break through and what are you working on now? 
There is nothing more powerful than young people who do something, that they really want to. We need social and ecological transformation in every dimension of our life to overcome the challenges of mankind on mother earth. This great challenge offers the biggest opportunity for a fulfilling life in history – for a holistic, meaningful and happy lifestyle. – I am trying to break through the mainstream noise of materialistic, unconscious, racist and exploitative society.  I am currently working on planing Skigaudi 2020 - including new workshops, universities and side events - Including a new self-empowerment and decentralized party concept with Soundboks.
What is your place in the SOUNDBOKS Universe and how are you empowered by SOUNDBOKS? 
Soundboks brings the melody and baseline to every project I am starting, like off grid tiny house building workshops, parties at my lake house or enriching and amplifying new innovative festival concepts – Soundboks inspires my creativity as an event designer to constantly come up with new event formats and truly helps us bringing our community together.
