Maike Both, Creator & Producer
UTW founder Maike Both moved from Germany to the USA to work for an L.A. based music management company, then switched to a career in the film industry. In 2006, she started Unfuck The World, selling t-shirts to raise money for charity. In 2013 Maike and her friends organized the 1st Annual UTW Day, followed by a number of local charity events which lead to Maike founding her own non-profit, A Million Drops. The A Million Drops Learning Center provides classes, workshops and support to young adults experiencing homelessness.
Johnny Cornwell, Co-Producer
UTW Day co-producer Johnny Cornwell has been Maike’s main partner in organizing Unfuck The World Day since day one. Involved in every aspect from pre to post production, Johnny’s main responsibility is the music production part of the L.A. based UTW Day events, from booking bands to organizing the stages and sound systems, to stage management and much more. As the owner of Mudhen Merch Co., he is also in charge of printing the authentic Unfuck The World t-shirts and hoodies.
