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.
Konstantin 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.
Aaron is a failed artist. He 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, he pretended to be politically minded, joined Peng and ever since is constantly brow beating every conceptual meeting to cover his insecurity. You can count on him to create to most poetic press releases and he was often observed at 3am with tears in his eyes reading positive press coverage over and over again. his favourite dish is plain toast with a lot of butter.
Matthew is the spice in your soup, the breeze on your stroll, the violin in your philharmonic orchestra and the magazine next to your toilet. He worked as a tour guide in the post-war kosovo areas and mediated late Nagorno-Karabakh/Azerbaijani post-conflict projects concerning the gravestone destruction of Julfa, Nakhichevan. He is also known for his infamous Heavy Metal song called Julfa Julfa Julfa.
Phoebe is a former spy who joined us through the Intelexit program. She 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, Phoebe keeps a low profile, and commutes into Berlin daily from a gherkin farm in Brandenburg.
