In the beginning of 2016 I took a sabatical three month break from Battalion, a creative agency based in Berlin where I was working on the year before as business developer, and went to Asia for that time. While there, I was invited by Emilia Tolvanen, a colleague of mine that was doing the artist care for this beautiful festival in an island 3 hours away from Bali, Indonesia, to be part of the team. Emi kindly asked me to jump over the boat and help the Air Festival crew on the last month before the event started.
I went straight away to Bali, where I worked with the team as assistant producer, mainly with Walker Barnard, the director and curator of the festival itself. During this short time I was responsible for reservations and ticket outreach, logistics regarding the artists, taking care of the bar and food team during the festival and supervising it together with the crew
