Working In Periods Of Sprint And Rest

Working in Periods of Sprint and Rest

During my first big studio productions, I started thinking about possibilities for improving the team member’s and my productivity and an agile way to accomplish and manage the whole projects. Currently, me working mainly in an IT department at a German Internet media startup (for more details visit my LinkedIn profile), I came in contact with a special procedure model for project management called “Scrum”.

Paid downloads/streams: yes
Analogue medium (vinyl): yes
Printed books: yes
e-books: no

The above-shown statement is my personal attitude. Would you agree with some points? Maybe you do, since it could represent quite precisely my generation – maybe an expert can analyse this “jumbled” likes and dislikes – I can’t, at least for now.

Taste It! – My “Funk Ya Soul” Spotify Playlist

Spotify Playlist "Funk Ya Soul"

Thanks to my parents’ legendary vinyl record collection (= the antique way to have a “playlist”), I directly came in contact with funky music in my early days of life. Most of the time I was listening to this kind of music – first passively then more actively at an advanced age. Until today, these genres accompany me through the everyday life and influence me intensively as a musician.
