After a few years in the Dutch television industry, THNK helped me realize that I crave a work environment where personal growth and working towards a common goal are the most important objectives. As a storyteller and generally optimistic person, I believe in a world where each life has equal value. To achieve this, I want to connect people through positive, yet urgent, stories based on honesty, authenticity, and compassion. This is why I am committed to working with social enterprises, NGOs and other like-minded people.

Currently, I am based in Amsterdam and one of my favorite activities is going to my local market to buy fresh produce. I love trying new recipes and cooking food from all over the world, but the Asian kitchen has to be my all-time favorite! Another thing that I love to do is read. When it comes to genres, I like everything from Harry Potter to "Where the Crawdads Sing" and in between! Immersing myself in a story and escaping reality is the best feeling in the world.

As a leader, I believe in honesty and vulnerability. Emotions are not a weakness but a sign of strength and by showing them, we can learn from each other.
