About Paula and Dirk


I’m a native Minnesotan. After I finished law school, I found a wonderful job in Duluth: a beautiful town nestled right up against Lake Superior. If you see me out and about, make sure to ask me about why I care so much about plastic pollution! I’d love to talk to you about it.


Originally from Düsseldorf, Germany, I have been living in the U.S. for 14 years. Now I am the Music Director and Conductor of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra in Minnesota. I was lucky enough to cross paths with Paula and we share a love not only for each other, but also for minimalistic, yet beautiful living.

We were lucky enough to cross paths and share a love for minimalistic, yet beautiful living. Living our lifes together, we continue to seek out new ways to reduce our environmental impact.

With MiNNBOX we are engaging with the small business community to further green commitments and delivering a beautiful product.


And, let’s be honest—everybody loves mail.
