About Me
We're a young professional couple (I'm German, my husband Simon is British/Welsh). Simon is a car designer and I own a marketing consultancy for sustainable brands. After 10 years in the UK we're about to relocate to the Bay area and would love to swap home. Before moving to the UK, we've lived in Germany, Australia and France. We love travelling and meeting new people, and I run, do Yoga and snowboard in my free time. As you can imagine, Simon is a car enthusiast and also loves running and snowboarding.
