Brief intro

Fascinated by the natural world, and its challenges and opportunities, I started this blog in 2015, describing my ideas and experiences, mostly related to sustainability and the environment. With curiosity and enthusiasm, a degree in Business and Environmental Management I try to do my part in the conservation of our environment (˘◡˘ )

In the past, I have supported and initiated various projects in the field of sustainability. Extensive experience has been gained in the private sector with a strong focus on creative and tech companies. My previous job, which also meant the start of a new career, was in conservation and that’s what really drives me.

I lived the first 18 years of my life in and around The Hague and moved for studies to Amsterdam. During and right after my studies I lived for longer periods in Willemstad (Curaçao) and Dublin. Life abroad has attracted me enormously ever since. End twenties, I had the opportunity to work in Düsseldorf and after a whole series of events–a great time btw, where I met my beautiful wife, developed my interest in sustainability, launched Sustainica, made new friends –we moved to Berlin, our final destination in Europe it seems.

Beginning 2021 we travelled to Australia and our plan is to live here for a while.

For now, I invite you to read my stories, to see what I am up to. We can also connect and if you have any questions, just send me an email.
