Our thoughts about New York
The vibe of New York City captivated us from the first second, when we came here many years ago. We both spent some months here, working and playing. We got to know it quite well – both the Upper East Side of it, the Hamptons as well as the galleries in Chelsea and the side streets of Williamsburg and Brooklyn. It really gives you a feeling as if anything is possible. Playing big. Dreaming wild.
Old school Hip hop, Frank Sinatra, Jazz.
Move there for a couple of months to soak up everything the city has to offer.
Take a vacation into Our life
We met in 2004, when we were both studying Design and Product Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg. From the first week on we became Soulmates, worked on many projects and travelled together. We’ve lived in Kuchl (very small town outside Salzburg 😉 ), New York, London and Stockholm together. After graduation we founded Nectar & Pulse in 2010. Our journey, both as friends and business partners, is a mutual growth process. We both share an infectious enthusiasm for Local Soulmates and travelling which makes our business our daily playground.
To describe us, this quote fits quite perfectly:
‘It doesn’t interest us what you do for a living. We want to know what you ache for—and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn‘t interest us how old you are. We want to know if you will risk looking like a fool—for love—for your dreams—for the adventure of being alive’.
—Oriah Mountain Dreamer
The moment when we realise that we are living the life we always dreamed of.
People who make the most of the now. Wise people. Curious people. People who are really good at what they do. Confident people. Genuine people. Loving people. Creative people.
