Managing Projects,
Events, and Communities

Project Management brings out my favorite parts of any work: The vision-making, the investigation of complex issues, the intervention planning and management, and the satisfying evaluation at the end of it all. I have since been lucky enough to get better at managing projects, events and communities through multiple early-stage projects – the latest of which is a new category in the portfolio of the Falling Walls Foundation that I am helping to grow.

Here are a few more things I've started
(or attempted to start)

Utopia on my Mind is a podcast that I’ve started in 2020 during the SARS-CoV2 pandemic. It curates and discusses people’s visions for a better world.

Nebenraum was another pandemic podcast project that was born out of the German Hackathon “WirvsVirus” and dealt with mental health during the pandemic.

LaOla was a social intervention project that wanted to reimagine protest culture and turn it into more holistic, inclusive, and productive experiences.

VeggieVillage was a website project that aimed to become a mixture of social community and wikipedia on sustainable lifestyle – particularly for intentional communities.
