Jelmer de Wolde
My name is Jelmer de Wolde and I am 34 years old. After graduating my master ‘’Intellectual Property Law’’ at the university of Amsterdam, I started first working at a trademark office in Amsterdam. After some time I started teaching law at the University of Applied Science in Amsterdam. In the meantime, 7 years ago, I had met a woman in Amsterdam who told me she came from Tallinn. 5 years ago we said ‘yes’ to the question if we would like to be man & wife, we have a 3 years old son and are we living in Tallinn for 1,5 years. And then the question for me: what to do in Tallinn? Especially with my specific background? Since I always had a passion for fashion, I decided to start living my dream.
