I'm Severin.

I'm a writer, producer, editor and strategist.

In 2017 I started co–matter, a global network exploring what makes communities thrive. We help brands connect with their audience, publish reports, host a podcast and organize summits to bring community leaders together.

I'm a founding member of Techfestival, a Copenhagen based think tank and festival about humane technology.

I was part of EyeEm's early team and helped build its global community of 22 million photographers.

My interest in the intersection of culture, communities and technology started when I was Lomography's managing editor from 2004 to 2010. I was lucky to be part of a small team that built a global brand around analog photography and lifestyle. While doing that I studied media philosophy in Vienna and Paris.

I live in Berlin. I enjoy cycling, sleeping and reading the newspaper on Sunday mornings.


I regularly speak about the future of communities, culture and technology at places such as The Future Laboratory, Hyper Island, IAM Weekend, The Family, Miami Ad School, Protein, SPACE10, IXDS, Social Media Week, Techfestival and Tech Open Air.


I'm happy to help with anything I can. Just reach out via Linkedin or say hi on Twitter.
