Being flexible in and around the office. Working on different locations, grabbing a coffee in the area or a good game of pingpong in the office.
Do you have any hidden talents?
What is your favourite spot in Cape Town and why?
Muizenberg. The first time I went for an early morning surf at Muizenberg, it gave me goosebumps.
If you weren’t a digital marketer, what else would you be?
From a young age, I was always interested in food. I think I could have explored studying to be a cook or anything relevant to the food industry. It’s a dream of mine to create a successful food concept whether it be a restaurant, foodtruck or snack brand.

DJ by Kluun. It’s about a DJ from my hometown, Breda, on becoming a world-famous DJ.

I love to go out for an early morning surf. However, any sport counts whether it be running, boxing, surfing, football or bootcamp class. They all keep me strong, motivated and clear-headed.
