Who wouldn’t you want to be stuck in the elevator with? Louis van Gaal. I don’t think it would take too long before he bored me to death.

My first job was: Working as a sales assistant in a shop in the city centre, I was 16 and still at school when I started there.

What do you like about living in Berlin? I love that it’s such a relaxed city with friendly people, a vibrant atmosphere and so much culture. The weather is a bonus too, I’d forgotten what summer was until I moved here. A sunny day in Manchester is so rare, it’s usually declared a public holiday.

Shimon, Senior Product Manager

Tell us your favourite joke! A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.” The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?” The boy takes the quarters and leaves. “What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!” Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream parlor. “Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill? "The boy licked his cone and replied: "Because the day I take the dollar the game is over!”

What item do you still have since your childhood? A pingpong racket

What don’t you like about living in Berlin?  It’s way too BIG

It was the most intense adventure I’ve experienced so far, four days and more than 80 km backpacking, hiking and sleeping in tents, one hot spring in the cold rain, and then another four days of driving around the entire island. Did I mention the unexpected occurrence of the northern lights?
