Niek van Riel
Digital Business Student at Cuttles
Niek is our dynamic, lively and ‘always up for a laugh’ Digital Business Student with a newly discovered flair for business and entrepreneurship. In his previous life before moving to Copenhagen he inspired young minds as a teacher in the outback of Australia. The harsh, unforgiving landscapes (and animal encounters) of the outback, as well as bush expeditions with the local Indigenous people, included loads of thrilling, exciting and unusual adventures. Niek is also addicted to the ocean, so much so he became (in yet another previous life) a scuba diving instructor in Thailand. Diving with whale sharks and turtles was just part of the everyday experience living on a small tropical island, but don’t be fooled, it was back-breaking work lugging scuba tanks every day! Niek has many extraordinary stories to tell so don’t be afraid to ask about them. At home, Niek likes to cook Asian-inspired dishes, brew kombucha, enjoy craft beer and keep active by running and playing volleyball. Niek brings a vast array of knowledge from numerous life experiences and isn’t afraid of a little hard work. A perfect recipe for the team at Cuttles!
