What motivates you?

To be able to contribute to the creation of music, film recordings, brands, products, concepts, or content in general, how they are sustainably and successfully marketed or how companies and individuals are preserved in their identity with their history is what motivates me and has always filled me with great satisfaction. In the end, despite all ambition, high quality can only be achieved where the advice focuses above all on people and on their financial success.
