Wouter

Wouter, always a fun name for non Dutch speakers to pronounce! As he told me once,   "You say the W like a V....as in wedding vows". Born in Rotterdam, Holland,  before moving to Godalming in Surrey when he was 11,  he is now a dual citizen which allows him to pretend he's a spy with his two passports. 
 
Always rocking 'geek chic' he earned a 1st and Masters in Computer Science from Manchester University, which led him to start his career at an investment bank, before moving on to technology companies which would see him fulfill a lifelong dream to live in New York City. 
 
Always one for travelling, he has ticked 39 countries of his list so far, with the slightly less touristy places being Irkutsk (Siberia), Mongolia and South Korea. He is currently pondering how he'll cope on honeymoon when he can't Amazon Prime himself some new cables. 
 
Languages Spoken: Dutch, English
Favourite Movie: Star Wars
Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: Chocolate Fudge (from Ben & Jerry's)
