1. Why do you love your job?

I like my job as it is dynamic and my work is very diverse. On one single day, I might be working on new product certifications, databases, design, etc., all depending on what is urgent.

 2. What do you think about working at GWS?

As I already mentioned, I have a very diverse job and I think GWS is just as diverse. We are a global company with many offices around the world and with employees from many different cultures. Meeting and working with people from all the different cultures makes for a very interesting work dynamic.

3. What are your hobbies? What do you like to do after work?

My newest hobby is actually my letterpress which I picked up last year. The press is more than a 100 years old, made out of cast iron and weighs about 750 kg. I am still learning the ropes but have tried it out already and it is great to work on a machine like this. The smell of old oil, ink and solvents, the sound of the machine running, its good fun to spend an afternoon working with it.

Other hobbies I have would be cooking, as I love to try out new recipes.  I also enjoy cycling and geocaching; an activity where, using a GPS unit, you search for little hidden containers that can be hidden anywhere. It allows you to be outside, have a nice walk and discover new and sometimes interesting places.

After work I usually relax and watch a film, series or television with my fiancée. 

4.    Anything else you want to add?

As we’re still in the beginning of 2015, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a Happy New Year and a lot of success in making this a great year.
