When people ask me ‘what I do’ I always faced minor difficulties. Some people know me as a communications advisor, a policy advisor, a copywriter or editor, others think I’m a content manager a project manager or a producer. Then another person comes around the corner: ‘hey, you’re that photographer!’

To be honest with you: I spent years to define ‘what’ I am. I sat down several times to make choices, put myself in a ‘box’ but the box just didn’t fit me. So let me tell you who I am: a creative thinker. And creativity is limitless.
Think of me as someone who can connect the right dots, because of all this experience. Being both skilled in the broad media field (advertising, magazines and TV) and public sector.

GOALS

My goal in life is to create & connect in the broadest sense. I trace problems (and opportunities) superfast. I’m able to see and make (unfamiliar) connections, which makes it easy to be a connector.

Creative thinking & problem-solving are my most valuable assets (next to being multi-faceted). Because of my deep curiosity I’d like to research things from A to Z, discover everything that is needed to get the job done as perfect is possible. (Self) development is most valuable to me. As a fast-learner – and an eager one –  I’m open to job opportunities that share these values and offer possibilities to grow together, and challenges.

I have a lot of work experience in the field of safety and security.
This links to my sense of justice.
