My name is Thea Neubauer, I am Chief Editor of sisterMAG, an Online Magazine for women, and Co-Founder of Carry-On Publishing, a publishing house for Digital Only Magazines.
I studied Engineering for Book and Media Production in Stuttgart and Leipzig. After a semester abroad in London I started working on the project „sisterMAG“ that turned into my thesis and finally into my full-time job. I’ve founded the company with my sister and brother-in-law four years ago, thus making a family business and not a regular start-up ☺.
For four years I’ve been living in Berlin. Until recently I lived in a 75 sqm flat in Prenzlauer Berg. However, I am just in the middle of moving in together with my boyfriend. The pictures however show my current single flat.
My white couch that was bought by my great grandmother, now standing in the dressing room and the brown wooden sideboard with intarsias that used to be in my parents’ living room. I have a lot of childhood memories with it, e.g. Easter egg hunting when I was as tall as its bottom part ;).
Seasonal flowers always lighten up the room!
I woke up in our new apartment, thus my first thought was that we don’t have warm water yet ;). Furthermore, that it is 6am and I am bored without wifi ;). Woke up my boyfriend ...
Calligraphy and speaking High-German ;) (I am from Saxony and everyone makes fun of my dialect)
Don’t always be afraid of everything and try sushi a little earlier in your life.
Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren
I don’t really have a favourite or least favourite colour. With each magazine of sisterMAG we develop a new colour scheme and a period of time I develop a fondness for those colours.
Pinning on Pinterest, reading quite cheesy novels and jogging.
Making food – mine and that of others – less or more salty just by willpower ;).
Dogs, for example a toy red poodle or a mix of poodle and schnauzer, they are adorable ☺.
Berlin is a melting pot of interesting people. It is easy to get to know new people, e.g. via working with freelance contributors. Furthermore I like that you can still find very cool places to live or work in. It is getting harder with so many people coming to Berlin, but it is still not comparable to other cities like London or Paris.
Having lunch at Arminiushalle in Moabit and I really love strolling along Kudamm, especially having a coffee at Grosz in Cumberland House, where you can adore the plaster and early 20th century interior decor.
Hermann Eicke on Brunnenstraße – close to my office where we have spent many mornings discussing projects and the future. Recently I’ve grown very fond of Café Giro in Charlottenburg.
Type Hype in Mitte, Schoemig Porzellan in Prenzlauer Berg and Hallesches Haus near Hallesches Tor in Kreuzberg
