Fabian Jean Villanueva
If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
– Malcolm X
Born from a Mexican-Haitian father and a Belgian mother, Fabian had a fabulous childhood in Brussels together with his two brothers, becoming widely known as the Jackson 3. After his degree in Law and Politics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, he worked as an IT contract manager for the European Union, where he successfully managed important budgets and confidential international dossiers. The key moment in his professional life was working as a promotion manager for the small independent production company Leïla Films. This experience steered his career into more creative directions, and thus straight into the arms of Base. Since 2010, Fabian works as our Business Developer, Press and PR Manager. Fabian loves badminton, freakily clean desks, soul music, dancing the stars away, Pop Lock, bird watching and beer debates. His heroes are Karl Marx, Tommie Smith, Marvin Gaye, John Carlos, Jeanne Mas, Leslie Nielsen and Michael Jackson, but never bother him with country music, George W. Bush and mathematics or he will rattle you off Das whole Kapital, in German.
