Consultant

For a while now, important political developments and how policy is really shaped fascinate me immensely. I have experienced policy influence from various angles, within different levels of government (province, national, and municipality), and within an interest organization. As a Consultant, I mainly focus on European legislation and its connection to the Dutch national level, particularly in the areas of circular economy and tech-related issues.

Personal

I prefer spending my spare time outdoors in the sun or on the water. It is likely that I am either on my racebike (if the weather is nice enough), in a yogaclass, trying out a new cuisine or surrounded by friends and family. These last two go great together. You can also find me in a bookstore or out enjoying the rich cultural life that Utrecht has to offer.
