Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelor: Oliver!
Oliver considers himself a Dutch guy who is never content and doesn’t settle for “good enough”. He’s self-taught in computer graphics and at a young age he moved from The Netherlands to the USA to study computer animation in Florida.
After some career changes he eventually ended up in Toronto. Living downtown Toronto gives him the flexibility to enjoy his friends, new places as he has always been very social. From company to company, he’s worked at many studios in Canada and also in the USA.
After some time, he realized he needed a change and went into real estate. This exposed Oliver to the entrepreneurial side and finding him new ideas that have been brought to fruition. From working with companies like Disney, Microsoft, Adobe, Alias/Wavefront, Scotia Bank, Bell, Tesla, Volkswagen, Mercedes, History Channel, SGI and Netscape, he’s always setting the bar higher and finding new passions.
Oliver’s motto is:
Create success and wealth for others, so we can all together enjoy life at ease.
