Carla Eikenaar, living in Amsterdam, married with a wonderful Spanish chef , loves culture, food & drinks. She’s educated in International business, specialised & working in Consumer Marketing over the past almost 15 years in companies like L’Oréal, TomTom, O’Neill and now Diageo. She keeps herself informed and lives in a part of town with mixed cultures, where change is happening every day.
She is driven by great experiences. She thinks culture is more important than wealth and is not impressed by traditional status symbols (give her a good bike over a HUGE car). She makes independent choices. A global citizen’s whose favourite saying is ‘Variety is the spice of Life’
Carla wants to be seen as independent and ‘in-the-know’, especially when it is about her area of work, culture, food & drinks. She wants to challenge expectations, always tries to stay objective and loves a good discussion. Most interesting facts come from talking to as many different people as possible. Is bored easily if people only talk about themselves and loves to go for a run, yoga, snowboard , scuba-dive or boogie to get her mind in a good place. Reading, art, cinema, travelling and philosophy is where she gets her inspiration from.
Carla chooses authenticity over appearance and seeks out different people to talk with at bars, exhibitions, cinemas, festivals, gigs, during travel and friend’s events who are open to the unknown. She aspires to people who dare to follow their passions in life.
