Reason for being here

Unlimited curiosity and an urge to make complexity workable.  

Finest hour

Bringing people to places, in their hearts, where, in their minds, they always wanted to be.  

Greatest inspiration

Pipi Longstocking: “I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that.” Everybody is allowed to experiment. And everybody is allowed to fail. Engage with discomfort and grow.  

Burning wish

That human modesty takes over from human engineering. That is no lack of ambition. On the contrary, it increases our chances of survival.
