THNK connection: THNKer , THRIVE - Class 02

I was born and raised in the Netherlands and have lived in Mexico, Argentina, and South Africa. I'm currently based in Amsterdam. I'm passionate about social entrepreneurship, nature conservation, business creation, and circular economies. I love nature.

I enjoy enhancing people’s strengths and consider myself an explorer of the world. I try to realize new ideas based on unexpected combinations and an unconventional approach, and I try to combine a strong analytical mindset with creative ideas. I favor work in an international context.

I love hiking (I miss Cape Town!), surfing, and bird watching.
