My story

Flexibility, engagement and entrepreneurship are the three keywords that characterise me as a working person. After 21 years in the creative industry I have done diverse projects like: building a successful company ‘Born05‘, cooperated with award winning creative agencies throughout Europe, started a Bluetooth Earphone brand and helped several startups grow their idea into a real business. The desire to create something new with big potential gives me positive energy and great satisfaction.
