Name 3 favorite hotels, anywhere, off the top of your head. Why are they your favorites?
All places have a super chilled vibe but great service. Town Hall Hotel is my favourite – I used to book a room there every once in a while even though my flat was only a five minute walk away.
What hotel room design element can you not live without?
Master switch by the bed.
You travel a lot for work, was this something you were seeking in a career? How do you make it as relaxing and fun as possible?
I never thought I would have the opportunity to travel so much so I didn’t really plan it. What I did plan though is to run my own business/work as a freelancer to be able to all have all the freedom in the world. I think the best thing is that I now know so many great people all over the planet so whenever I travel I will try to meet up with friends and get to know a new city that way.
What 3 songs are on your OOO playlist?
Parallaxis – Traumprinz
Kanedo – Beach Side
Your Eyes – Julain Collet, Jakob Oschmsnn
