Floor Drees

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Floor Drees: I was born in Leiden, in the Netherlands. Always had an appetite for learning and reading, but went to art school instead to explore that side of me that likes to create. I worked in design at a newspaper (NRC and nrc.next for the Dutchies), and as a community manager for agencies after falling in love with the Internet.

Chris Travers

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Chris Travers: I guess the best way to answer this is to say I am from the US. I moved around a lot as a kid – California, Michigan, Utah, Washington State. In 2010, I moved abroad, and have not moved back. Since then I have lived in Indonesia, Sweden, and Germany. I am now living in Indonesia again.

Karen Jex

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Karen Jex: I’m originally from the North West of England and I lived in various different parts of the country before settling in the South East, commuting to London from Essex for the first few years of my working life as a DBA. I’ve spent my whole career working with databases, and I’m currently a Solutions Architect with Crunchy Data. My husband and I moved to a small village in the French Alps 17+ years ago because of our love of mountain biking (Essex isn’t exactly well-known for its mountains). Our two kids, who are now teenagers, were both born here and say they feel more French than British. The eldest is also a mountain biker and is, of course, much better at it than we are!
