“In the past, I worked with a small company in Berlin and helped to design and build their device interface. The issues I’d like to address with my work would be the general ignorance of most people towards world problems like global warming, pollution, animal and human rights violation and the rising amount of misinformation circling through the internet. I’m excited to work with Axel Springer and help to drive positive change with innovation.”
