Brief intro

Fascinated by our natural world, and its challenges and opportunities, I started this blog in 2015, describing my ideas, projects and experiences. With a degree in Business and Environmental Management I try to do my part in the protection 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 was in nature conservation and that’s what really drives me.

I lived most of my life in The Hague and later in Amsterdam. During and right after my studies I lived for longer periods in Dublin and Willemstad (Curaçao). Life abroad has attracted me enormously ever since. At 29, I had the opportunity to go to Düsseldorf and after a whole series of events – this was a great time where I met Juliane, developed my interest in sustainability, launched Sustainica, made new friends – we moved to Berlin, our last destination in Europe it seems.

Beginning 2021 we travelled to Australia and our plan is to live here for a while (˘◡˘ )

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