Hey :)

To make the board a bit more "real" we want to add a short bio for
each board member and Claudia to
I am not able to do this in a visually nice way. Can one of you help
me out with this? That'd be awesome.
The text is attached as well as photos (others are linked in the text
file). Pradeepto still needs to provide his bio and picture and
Agustin his picture. I can add that later myself.
