For Paul and Hansen, adventure has become a general attitude in life. They believe, that the propensity for convenience in our society, causes many problems. They claim, that if you start thinking like an Adventurer in your life, you chose the better way over the convenient way. You can start making better, more sustainable decisions, by asking yourself a simple question. Paul Hoepner, born five minutes after his brother Hansen, spent a year in Australia after completing high school, then graduated in media design in Cologne and then spent two years working in an agency (virtualidentity.com) as an online conceptioner in Berlin. He then studies Human Factors (humanfactors.tuberlin.de) in Berlin and worked at Pocketweb (www.pocketweb.de) as a project manager and conceptioner for mobile applications. Both have worked together as inventors and adventurers for many years and can be seen on many talks and TV shows.
