As a Consultant I support and advise clients in both The Hague and Brussels. Because of my EU background, I mainly advise on European policy issues such as digital services (Tech), competition, international trade & taxation, and everything related to plastic.
I combine my strategic and communicative strengths with a keen sense of political and administrative relations. As a result, clients quickly get a clear overview of what is going on in Brussels and The Hague, what legislative files are relevant to them, and how they can respond to such developments.
I have lived abroad for a long time and I speak several languages, which is always useful for conversations in Brussels. I am serious but I also have a good sense of humour.
I also have hobbies. I have the largest privately owned collection of mini-Eiffel towers in the Netherlands (I think) and I love country music. The latter is something I acquired during my exchange in the United States. I love tennis. I also organise tours of The Hague in my spare time: that’s how I combine my passion for history and love for The Hague.
