Alex Kjerulf, Chief Happiness Officer, Woohoo

In his spare time Alex reads a lot. He also does Crossfit and watches tons of movies. And in case you’re wondering, his last name (Kjerulf) is pronounced a little like care-oolf.

The vision of Woohoo is: A world where happiness at work is the rule and not the exception.
