I consider myself a seasoned international since I have lived and worked in various countries around the world throughout the course of my life. I enjoy working with different people and on different projects within different industries (Variety is the spice of life!) I am currently in the process of developing my own company and work as a management consultant within the area of cross-cultural management and organizational development. I also assist internationally oriented entrepreneurs in starting, managing and developing For/Non profit organizations.


Entrepreneurship , Management , Conflict Management/Negotiation, Project Management, Business Development, Organizational Development , and Research.

Activities & Projects

I am currently involved with the Fedora Project as an Ambassador in the Netherlands/EMEA. I am interested in promoting Open Management/Leadership, Event planning/Management, Marketing, and Open Business/Project development especially within our community, but also outside of it.

Furthermore, I would like to help promote all things Open and become more involved in the policy-making and development of Open Standards, Open Culture, Open Innovation, Open Business and Open Government.

One of my passions would be to help local and global entrepreneurs use Fedora as a tool to build low cost sustainable businesses, promote open society and contribute to innovation and diversity. Furthermore, these sustainable businesses shall encompass all things open and shall contribute to the upstream of their respective classifications.

My mentor was Yaakov Nemoy
