The people behind Peng! are hard working and highly professional. The inner core is small, but there are more than 100 people in the extended network, having all kinds of backgrounds: science, media, politics, art, craft, public service. We also hire external specialists to work with on specific campaigns.
Thomas is a mechanical engineer and once owned a monsterbike workshop in Rajasthan. He married and divorced a German and set up an electricity sharing collective in Berlin that redistributes electricity bills through physical hacks into households and databanks. After a major electrical shock, he left the collective and focussed solely on Peng engineering issues. Thomas is extremely religious when it comes to politics.
Gloria has no pronoun and prefers to use pen and paper rather than verbal communication where possible. Because Gloria sleeps for only 45 minutes a day, Gloria is able to hold down several jobs at leading corporations while remaining a dedicated mole for Peng! Before joining the collective, Gloria studied marine biology and dedicated 10 years to raising funds and establishing a sea life centre for retired show dolphins in Thailand.
Aaron always tries to look funny but keeps laughing at inadequate moments. Heavily identifying with his ADHD diagnosis, he likes to use Peng´s own disruption tactics in internal meetings, creating strategic disturbances when the team discussion is too focused. He mainly lives off grandmas who believe he is their forgotten nephew and for rough times, he has a part time job at a local newspaper. We all know that if Peng were to crumble, he would be the last one standing, holding the pistol.
