Project Manager

My story

Originally a multidisciplinary designer and branding expert, I’d always wanted to also hone my project management skills. When the opportunity to join Optiweb’s WordPress team as a project manager arose, I didn’t hesitate to apply. After work, I am an avid footballer and a proud father at home. I stand my ground when the situation calls for it while always being ready to learn new things and grow as a person. Oh, and I make exceptional pancakes! ;)

Step so far outside your comfort zone that you forget how to get back.

Fun facts

#1I love chocolate. Especially if it has cookies inside.
#2I have played football for more than 20 years. Whenever I think about it, I start feeling old.

They asked me …

Which is your favorite football league?

The Premier League (followed closely by La Liga).

Cats or dogs?

Cats! (although I do like dogs too)

What are your favorite travel destinations (already visited) and why?

Crete (Greece) – “never-seen-before” relaxed culture and extremely friendly people, Ko Tao (Thailand) – still not too-crowded (or mainstream) & great cuisine

Which is the proudest moment of your life?

Easy – the birth of my son!
