Project Portrait: Day 35

Day 35 of Project Portrait. Next up we have the one, the only Boris Veldhuijzen Van Zanten. Boris is the CEO and co-founder of The Next Web. He’s also my boss. I’ve worked for Boris since March this year and he’s an absolute hoot to work for. The first time I was invited over to his for dinner I woke up at 5 in the morning face down and fully clothed in my hotel room half-way through a conversation with my friend on messenger in which the last words were, “I just think you’re really fucking AWEOSME” [sic]. He’s hands down my favourite boss since Terri White. This was shot at Google Campus while Boris was in London for The Next Web’s World Tour. He’s a man who has always been on the stage – he trained to be a circus performer, but I wanted to grab him before he performed his act.
