Radio & Television

Apple’s 1997 ‘Think Different’ commercial really inspires me. It’s about people that look at things differently. Granted, they’re not the easiest people to work with, but they do change the status quo: “They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward”.

These changing times require precisely this breed of people. Only people with the guts to go against the grain, the people that do things differently have the ability to actually change things.

These creative minds are everywhere: entrepreneurs, scientists, CEOs, politicians, and students. They take on the status quo wherever they are. They prefer looking for possibilities instead of thinking in terms of impossibilities. That’s why I interview them, discuss issues with them and pass their stories on to others.

Here’s to the crazy ones
