Extra curricular
As a ‘home-grown’ culinary enthusiast André is passionate about cooking. In his opinion this passion blends perfectly with social involvement, serving others and working with precision. The drive and care required of a good cook are also indispensable in his business life: being a good lawyer means working with accuracy, proactive and professional, geared to the client’s needs. Considering his experience in law practice André was asked to participate in the penalty commission of the Vrije Curaçaosche Voetbal Federatie [VCVF] an association with a social earmark.
