Anja Hitzenberger | strudelmediaLive – Ep.90

“I feed off of other people, that’s really how I teach, I love teaching this way. I like to improvise, I like to go by what is needed.” Anja Hitzenberger and I talk about photography, food, Mozart balls, and her new online venture, StrudelmediaLive, where she sometimes teaches from a mountaintop.
