Growing in the city of Utrecht with roots spreading to the province of Brabant and branches reaching Italy. Passionate yachtsman, both with family and in competitions. I like the outdoors, especially mountain biking in the vicinity of Zeist. I enjoy it when I can convey my passion and enthusiasm for something, both in my work with experience projects and privately. I am a student at the University of Life.
