Meet Me: Matthew Giani

 

Where can we find you?

When not at the office, gym or football field. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, usually at a braai or watching a good movie on the couch.

What do you love most about your job and why?

Working with numbers to produce a workable and understandable end product that is vital for good management. Taking an entire business and working it into a single document to explain and summarise it, is something I find fascinating and enjoyable.

What is the most interesting thing you can see out of your office?

A combination of the ocean and the famous Greenpoint Stadium, which is definitely a view worth taking in during a lunch time.

How many languages do you speak?

Two, English and Afrikaans. Fluent in both as my mother is English and my father is Afrikaans.

How would you describe your personal style?

Trendy, but sensible. I enjoy dressing well and dressing to the occasion, however I’m an accountant so there is always a budget.

What dream do you still want to fulfil?

For my wife and I to further our home and family with a child, perhaps two.

What is your favourite sport to watch and play?

Football, of course!!

How often do you exercise?

Four to five times a week, usually a mixture of cardiovascular and weight training. Of course playing sport is also exercise just much more enjoyable, which I do at least once a week.

What was your most memorable holiday. Why?

My holiday to Dubai recently, as this was the first proper holiday for my wife and I. It was also a belated honeymoon for us, for that reason and that the fact that it was an amazing country to behold makes it my most memorable.

Where will you be travelling next?

An area of the world I have not yet seen and would like to visit is more to the East. Everyone that has visited these areas such as Thailand has mentioned its beauty. So I would say that is the next stop for my wife and I.
