Bachelor and Master of Music, lived in the Netherlands, fluent in German, Dutch and English plus greeting and swearing in French. I like climbing, fly fishing, sauna and watches. Built an app called youlula, which teaches you to play guitar, and have a weakness for all kinds of marketing and ad strategies. I've been a member of the band CAUSES (Sony Music) and am blessed to have met so many talented people in the music business. This rollercoaster ride led to two gold and one platinum award discs and the ability to abstract, learned through the unique and unpredictable nature of the music industry. I teach masterclasses at conservatoria concerning the music industry and social media, give startup workshops on business-model-canvas-based product development and offer different kinds of development solutions together with my brother via our agency Zerebras GmbH, which is also specialised in cross-boarder consulting. I have a broad municipal, educational and industrial network in the Netherlands and Germany and am a member of different boards regarding dutch and german affairs.
