His experiences traveling around the world have given Bjorn time to appreciate the cultural landscape that has surrounded him throughout his life.

Koch has been able to bring this wider, global understanding to business and apply it directly to his own living, living a diverse life.
Most of his time is spent in some of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, New York City, and Boston.

His travel experience spread even further around the world, having the opportunity to see the Rio de Janeiro, Punta de L’este, Guadeloupe, St. Barth, Manila, Philippines, and Tokyo.
Coming from a culturally diverse family, that includes ancestors from both Germany and Sweden, Bjorn Koch learned to communicate in many different languages at an early age. Bjorn Koch can speak four different languages, including German, Swedish, English, and Spanish. These skills have allowed Bjorn to further immerse himself into the culture of the countries he loves so much to visit.
In addition to enjoying the local flavorings on his travels, Bjorn Koch also likes to spend his time skiing.
