ATTILA – PARTNER AND FOUNDER
Born and raised in Modena (Italy), I’ve always been in the entertainment industry organizing nightlife events.
After graduating in International and Marketing Management, I moved to the NL nine years ago with the role of Country Manager for an Italian manufacturing company.
Social driven, enthusiastic, ambitious, and supporter of people in my network, I firmly believe that a smile and social attitudes are keys to a happy life.
MASSIMILIANO – PARTNER
Hi! My name is Massimiliano.
I was born and raised in Palermo (Italy), where I graduated at the age of 25 just before leaving Italy to follow my passions and to travel the world as part of my career in the Oil & Gas industry.
I have been living in the Netherlands for seven years. I am a passionate person, sports enthusiast, and socially active.
I love to connect people and to make an impact on the world.
RICCARDO – HOST
Convinced that meeting people with different origins and backgrounds can only enrich and expand our vision of life.
Passionate about ethnic food, yoga, and traveling to unknown destinations.
MASSIMO – WEB DESIGNER
Hi there! I am Massimo and saw AIC being born.
Such an adventure that took us from just an idea to what AIC has grown into today.
I am a geek, love finding solutions for the world. When I am not ready for it, then I spend my time surrounded by nature and the sound of the world.
Never give up and always keep going… is the motto that has always guided my path and the best wish for AIC!
SALOME’ – CREATIVE DESIGNER
Hi! I am Salomé and proudly part of this fantastic team since the beginning of AIC.
For years I worked in the fashion industry, but at some point in my career, I felt that it was time to give way to my own creative life. My father’s carpentry and love of crafts influenced me heavily – as a child, I would spend the summers with him.
For me, the craftsmanship, devotion, and creativity are so inspiring. Therefore, I founded Floor Studio NDSM, dedicating my creative mind to the floor design.
CARMEN – HOST
I found my tribe in Amsterdam, and I’m eager to help others find theirs. That is the motivation number one to work with the amazing AIC group.
KIM – HOST
My name is Kim and I was born in the Netherlands. I’m writing this text while sitting on the airplane, taking off to Mallorca (Spain).
I started hosting events for expats this year, and I decided to get more and more involved. For ten years, I have worked as a social worker/coach and massage therapist, with all kinds of people.
Next to traveling, my passions are food, cooking, wine, dogs, nature, and spiritual practices. In Dutch, we have two important words. “Genieten” en “Gezellig,” i.e., Enjoy and Cosy. So let’s have fun and share experiences!
VALENTINA – ASSISTANT ORGANIZER
JESSICA – HOST
HIZELL – YOGI TEACHER
MENNO – DINNERMASTER
This little piece of text should be about me, but it’s actually about you.
I see myself as a reflection of all the people that I meet in my life. You add to me with your cultural backgrounds, your knowledge, and your funny stupid stuff. How fortunate we are to be able to connect so easy and by doing so, adding to each other’s lives.
