Born and raised in Amsterdam, I also spent part of my childhood in the small southern Dutch town of Breda, which has shaped me in the sense that I best thrive in smaller teams or communities – I discovered this when I worked for the Dutch Tax Authorities after my studies in Tax Law. In such a large organization, I felt like a number, lost in the crowd and missed making a real impact.
While the idea of changing the world for the better through fairer and better taxation still burns inside of me, I'm very happy that I made the switch to THNK. As an organization, we can make a big impact through the leaders of today and tomorrow, and as a person, I can make a big impact in this growing and rapidly developing organization.
When I'm not working, I like to take long bike rides through nature and play football with my amazing Sunday league team.
