Tell us about yourself?
I’m originally from Belgium, and now I live in Berlin with my wife and two kids. We have quite the international mix at home – we speak French, Russian, English and German between ourselves. After starting my career at Groupon in London, I moved to Berlin in 2012 for a career opportunity at their international HQ. I thought it would be a one-year adventure and then I’d move back to London. I’ve now been living in Berlin for nearly 10 years, working on various high-growth companies, and I still enjoy it every day. The city offers everything that I find important in terms of living standards: exciting career opportunities, affordable cost of living (I know, it’s not THAT cheap anymore but we’re still ranking pretty well compared to other major European cities), an international and open-minded community, and enough to do and explore in the city & surroundings for all ages.
