Words shape the world. Questions illuminate it.

Communication is the beginning and an indispensable part of change.

To summarise my professional biography: although I am of Dutch origin, I have lived in different countries and have resided in Spain for the past 25 years.

I studied Design (both interior and graphic) in Barcelona and hold a postgraduate degree in illustration. Later I trained in Coaching, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), theater and Storytelling. And 5 years ago I decided to add a BA in Anthropology to the list.

The first company I founded was a design and communications studio, the second was an editorial services agency and the third was dedicated to Storytelling and Transmedia.

At present, I lead GENETIKOMM, a Business Development, Marketing and Communications consultancy specialising in building a future for organisations that is consistent with their history.

I am also an international speaker, startup mentor, university teacher, ambassador to the Amsterdam-based Storytelling Center and member of the World Communication Forum Committee.

I am a polyglot (I speak 7 languages) and in my spare time I like to practice calligraphy, watercolor, poetry, writing and music.
