I’m the founder & director of an art non-profit, social entrepreneur and philanthropist. Through my work, I try to bridge the gap between art institutions and communities, approach business in a responsible way and provide free education to those who need it the most.
Since 2004, I’ve worked in 1/3 of the world’s countries, collaborating with some of the world’s most established contemporary artists. After running both a non-profit venue and a commercial art gallery in Germany, each for three years and putting on numerous projects such as exhibitions, performances, concerts, lectures, screenings, I’ve organized the world’s largest tape art piece, numerous murals and more. In 2011, I founded the art non-profit Public Delivery and shared some of my experiences as a speaker at conferences like TedX. I am also editor of an online art magazine with hundreds of thousands of readers yearly.
Born and raised in Germany, I usually spend my time between Seoul, Shanghai and Bangkok.
Founder & director of non-profit art organization
Public Delivery is based out of Seoul, South Korea, and aims to be a new model within contemporary art. Since 2011, I organized projects in 66 different countries. Notable: Asia’s tallest mural, a pop-up exhibition opening on the same weekend on six continents and global performance project Silence Was Golden. Public Delivery and its magazine with hundreds of published articles receives more traffic than most art institutions and publications operating in the same field.
Consultant to world’s largest NGOs, governments and others
To United Nations, International Labor Organization, World Vision, United States Department of Labor, United Nations ESCAP, International Organization for Migration, the Australian Government, Sage Organic Vegan Bistro (world’s largest vegan restaurant) and others.
Advisor to free school for migrants
Since 2002, DEAR Burma provides free education to thousands of migrant students in Bangkok, Thailand each year. To most, it is the only chance to escape a generational cycle of extreme poverty. The school became a role model for other institutions and policy makers in South East Asia and beyond. Through my work, I have helped over 10,000 students to receive an education.
Co-owner of tea brand
Misty Peak is a social entrepreneurship company and unlike almost every other tea company, uses direct sourcing to help the farmers living a better life. This together with fair trade is directly responsible for building roads and hospitals, and providing better education. The tea is available in 500+ stores internationally.
