Despite his attractiveness to theater and poetry, the school of mathematical gymnasium and the profession of financier predetermine Valentin’s job of solving propositions, often with many unknowns.

Balanced optimist, with strong business intuition and mathematical insight, in his free time Valentine is charging himself with practicing his favorite sports such as skiing, windsurfing and tennis – at the table and on the court.
