It is impossible to provide a comprehensive description of oneself on a single page of your website, but hopefully this will give you an idea of who I am and what my interests are.
I studied Marketing Management at Tilburg University and then pursued specialisation in Digital Marketing. I have always been interested in economics, marketing and technology. I don’t like simple tricks, but prefer a strategic approach befitting a brand’s positioning, one that will contribute to its long-term competitive advantage.
I live in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. I know Dutch people have a reputation for travelling a lot and I am no exception.
After graduating from university, in 2009, I travelled in Peru and Ecuador for 3 months, picking up some Spanish in Cusco along the way. In 2015, my girlfriend and I lived in Bradford, England for 3 months while I worked from the Digital Hub in Leeds. It was there that we decided to take a trip around the world, which will kick off on 4 May 2016.
I won’t bore you with details of all the other, shorter stays abroad :-).
I have been working as a freelance digital marketer since 2011. At home in Eindhoven, I work out of the co-working space Strijp CS. Co-working spaces are great places to meet new people and freelancing gives me the freedom to do my job from anywhere in the world.
Although I may work independently, I don’t work alone. I have a network of people that I enjoy collaborating with, including designers, developers (WordPress, Magento), copywriters etc., which allows me to offer a full range of online marketing services while remaining flexible.
I have a few other hobbies in addition to travel. Running is certainly the most time-consuming one of these, and the one I am most dedicated to. My marathon PB is 2.33. (See my Strava)
Other than that, I like alternative music: (See my Last.fm), wine, cooking and many more things. I subscribed to the Economist even before our world travels started.
I think this broad range of interests helps me adapt easily to new situations, companies and cultures. But I’ll let you be the judge of that.
