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.
Daniel is a former spy who joined us through the Intelexit program. He is believed to be the brains behind many of the current surveillance technologies being used to monitor the activities of intelligence agencies in several repressive regimes. Not one for appearing in public, or answering questions directly, Daniel keeps a low profile, and commutes into Berlin daily from a gherkin farm in Brandenburg.
David was born in a small town near Cologne, Germany. He developed an early interest in 17th century baroque music and in his teenage years started training to be a professional pole vaulter, competing against international athletes like Sinka Kardos and Roda Mortran. David now works as a spiritual healer and is a father of six.
Stefanie is a failed artist. She visited six different art schools in Amsterdam, Mexico City and Shang Hai a.o., but never finished a degree, as this is what makes a good artist biography. Desperate for success, she pretended to be politically minded, joined Peng and ever since is constantly brow beating every conceptual meeting to cover her insecurity. You can count on her to create to most poetic press releases and she was often observed at 3am with tears in her eyes reading positive press coverage over and over again. Her favourite dish is plain toast with a lot of butter.
Robert is the virtual member of the Collective, only known through several false names and avatars. He is a security expert and has access to a number of classified databases which have provided crucial information for the most delicate Peng! actions. During collective chat-meetings, he usually plays online versions of Go, an old Chinese strategy board game. According to what we know, he has two dogs, a cat and a koala bear.
