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.
Dany is a mechanical engineer and once owned a monsterbike workshop in Rajasthan. She 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, she left the collective and focussed solely on Peng engineering issues. Dany is extremely religious when it comes to politics.
Karla is the spice in your soup, the breeze on your stroll, the violin in your philharmonic orchestra and the magazine next to your toilet. She 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. She is also known for his infamous Heavy Metal song called Julfa Julfa Julfa.
Konstantin works for a major international publishing house that should not be named here. He is quick in thought, elegant in gestures, romantic in morals and deep in eye-to-eye looks. Instead of finishing his business degree at the University of Alabama Business School, he chose to invest his time into repeated public humiliation of the local Ku Klux Klan. When they finally dissolved, he migrated to Europe and landed up in Berlin heading up the Peng! Division on bureacracy. He is also an excellent cook of Mongolian cuisine.
Susanne 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.
