My pronouns are: he/him/his
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Amsterdam

I was born and raised in the North of Holland and moved to Amsterdam at the age of 18. I am still happily living in Amsterdam. I am married and father to three children. I have worked almost my whole life in the fashion industry and was heading a company for the past 20 years. Just before the corona epidemic, I decided to let go of the remainder of the company and start over again. Today I am in real estate and have 2 online companies and am investing in different businesses.

My passion is people, working with people, family and friendships. I find it very joyful to be amongst others. Being happy for me is mostly when I am around other people. In work, it translates to having a hard-working, motivated group around me, and in private to have a large group of good friends.

My second passion is traveling, whether it is for work or for pleasure. Seeking new places, both cities and nature. I have traveled on almost all continents and there are so many more places to see. I also used to travel for work at least 5 times a year, and it made me happy when it was more than that.
