  • What gives you hope?
    That there are significantly more people in this world who do good than people who only criticize; unfortunately, the second group is often louder than the first.

  • How does change happen?
    Through conviction, role modeling and (keeping it real) realism.

  • What's your current favorite Read/Song or Artist?
    Christo und Jeanne-Claude – because they realized their visions against many odds.
