- Do you have any nicknames? When I lived in Spain, I used to fly single engine aircraft and did some aerobatics. I was known back then as "Pelofanta", literal translation "Fanta-hair". I even had a fan club with 2 members!
- Which is your favorite t-shirt? I have one themed after Game of Thrones. It says "I drink, and I know things. That’s what I do", which kind-of reflects what I do at Bango
- What's the next thing you'll learn? I am currently reading some books about corporate finance, a topic I find fascinating. I also would like to learn to restore classic cars in the not too distant future
