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.
Matthew wanted to become both lawyer and astronaut and thus failed at both. He then focused on tangible skills like road pavement, hybrid cooling systems for server farms and money printing plates, as these hold together society at its most vulnerable spots. He is holding about 500 lacewings (Chrysoperla Carnea) at home and gives each ones individual Hindu names. When it comes to infrastructural hacking, he holds the part between her closed eyes with her fingertips and thinks loudly.
Jessica 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, Jessica keeps a low profile, and commutes into Berlin daily from a gherkin farm in Brandenburg.
Emily always tries to look funny but keeps laughing at inadequate moments. Heavily identifying with her ADHD diagnosis, she likes to use Peng´s own disruption tactics in internal meetings, creating strategic disturbances when the team discussion is too focused. She mainly lives off grandmas who believe she is their forgotten niece and for rough times, she has a part time job at a local newspaper. We all know that if Peng were to crumble, she would be the last one standing, holding the pistol.
