Name: Vlad Strestian
Nickname (current oder previous): Gingerhead (I was called this in my childhood when I had red hair and freckles. Thankfully, my hair eventually changed color)
From: Republic of Moldova
Job-title: Project manager
A surprising fact about myself: I have a great ear for music. Just by listening to a song, I can figure out the artist/genre/year the song was written as well as details about the instruments played (number of strings on guitars, which type of saxophone, etc.).
Favorite place in Hamburg and why: HafenCity, it has this neat modern touch while also maintaining the Hanseatic/harbor vibe. I generally like harbors and port cities because I spent most of my childhood in Odessa, Ukraine, which hosts one of the biggest ports in the Black Sea.
Favorite foreign language and why: Tough to choose one but has to be Finnish, I love how it sounds, including its phonetics and pronunciation.
Best part about working for wordinc: The tremendously welcoming and nice team.
