Together with Sanne, I founded Spotted by Locals in 2008.
I have been very fortunate to be able to live in, and travel to quite a few of places around the world. I have a crush on many of the cities I visited from 2008 until now for Spotted by Locals. But I still love Amsterdam, where I live and wake up most of the time, the most! 🙂
In my opinion, an understanding of other cultures is the key to peace and prosperity. I actively spread the word on congresses, for example at the The Economist Future of Travel summit. It’s one of the many reasons I stay motivated to grow Spotted by Locals.
Before Spotted by Locals I was a management consultant at Magnus Management Consulting, and a senior projectmanager / consultant Internet communities at KREM.
