Hey, nice to meet you! I’m Kevin, the new one. I will be joining the team for about two weeks, it would be impolite not to introduce myself. So let’s get started!

  • How would you describe yourself?

This is one of those hard questions with actually quite an easy answer. I would say: The geeky laidback guy that’s up to no good!

  • What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone?

My geekiness and fascination for all kinds of things, I still feel like a little boy that keeps discovering new things in the big world.

  • What inspires you?

People who are ambitious and are not afraid to take any risks. Most of the time, those are the people that do the things they love.

  • If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes, whose would they be? Why?

I would choose to be a famous designer, and make people buy and use things I made.

  • What made you choose WE LIKE YOU for your internship?

Well, it’s actually quite a strange story. I was looking for social media agencies and found WE LIKE YOU. While checking out the website I saw Eva, for some reason she looked so familiar. I started doing some research and remembered I followed her on Instagram. That moment I just picked up the phone and called her. … And yes, I did ask her about Instagram.

  • What do you anticipate learning during this internship?

I really had no idea how a company like WE LIKE YOU worked, so I hope to learn all the things that a company deals with. Basically, I’m just here for the full experience.

  • How does your first day at WE LIKE YOU feel?

Well, it has been a long time I’ve been up so early, so still very enthusiastic! I got welcomed by classmate and fellow intern Ines, so knowing someone makes it easier to fit in.

  • Are you a Social Media fanatic?

I wasn’t that into social media, but these days my phone has been sticking to my palms like glue so I would say YES!

  • How much time do you spend on social media?

I’m always connected, so I don’t call it “spending time”.

  • Who or which brand do you like the most on Instagram?  

Gary Vaynerchuk! A few years ago, I was looking for some motivation and some site had a video of Gary talking about his ideas about the companies and the web. Since then I started following him. Look at where he is now, what a legend…

  • What do you think about the future of social media?

The future looks very bright I must say. There are so many ways that social media can be used. The only problems we will face are the privacy issues. (We’ll fix that 😉)

  • What gets you up in the mornings?

My snooze button. 

  • How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?

Chop it. Just kidding, how big is the refrigerator?

  • If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

What do you mean, no sleep? What about my bed? 

  • Do you drink alcohol?

Can’t say no to a good drink! BUT I only drink when I’m going out.

  • Are you usually early or late?

Heh. (Was early today though)

  • What was the worst job you’ve ever had?

Working at a meat factory, NEVER AGAIN.

  • Instagram Stories or Snapchat?

Instagram, people tend to interact more with me on Instagram. 

  • What are your favorite apps?

Spotify, Youtube and Instagram. Visual entertainment or music keep me busy.

  • What is your favorite TV-show?

Oh-oh… I must confess, I don’t watch TV-shows. When people talk about shows I smile and slowly back out.

  • Where would you like to live?

I don’t really know, I still have places to check out!

  • Which kind of music genre do you ‘dig’?

Some relaxing beats, I don’t really know how to call it. It has influences of hip-hop.
It certainly isn’t very mainstream. 

  • What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?

Last week a friend and I tried to get as far as possible without paying. We made it to Strasbourg. I would do it again, this time with more time and a small budget. Which can take us to other parts of the world

  • What would you never ever wear?

I have to watch out what I say here, but let’s say leather pants. I don’t ride motorcycles and I don’t think I’m a rockstar.

  • What is your biggest fear?

H-h-h-heights!

  • Last but not least, how do people recognize you?

The tall and skinny guy. Glad I’m not too lanky.
