Since the first day I met SCRUM back in 2011, projects haven't been the same anymore. There's nothing more fulfilling then trimming down a complex or large project with a seemingly impossible deadline into smaller realistic and prioritized iterations. Over the course of the past 3 years I've helped implementing SCRUM at Refresh Interactions and served the role of Product Owner on most of our projects.
Consulting is my second nature. I have a passion for helping people and companies and I rely on data to drive business decisions. I'm specalised in online and e-mail marketing, e-commerce and using technology in general to solve and assist in business related issues.
Everyday I strive to learn something new. I actively push myself to become a better human each day. I travel, visit conferences, read books, articles and can sometimes get lost on Wikipedia. I tend not to wait for an inspirational moment but actively force myself out of my comfort zone to pursue new ventures and activities.
I’m able to adapt and learn fast. Learning is part of my DNA. Gaining knowledge, discovering new ideas and concepts and aligning them with business needs, I love it.
I thrive in a fast paced environment. Dealing within high pressure environments brings out my best solutions towards a problem.
Because of my diverse background & interests, I am able to see the world as others see it and able to communicate my understanding of another person's position or feeling.
Autonomy plays an important role in my (professional) life. As the author Dan Pink beautifully stated in his book "Drive": "Human beings have an innate inner drive to be autonomous, self-determined, and connected to one another. And when that drive is liberated, people achieve more and live richer lives.”
I've developed a sense of seeing, recognizing new oppurtinities. I'm optimistic.Combining ideas with skills and with the right people in order to make a dent in the universe is what I love doing the most.
I'm a huge tech geek. Everything from hardware, software, smartphones, servers and new technology captures my attention. I like to play around and build stuff with or at least on based technology. I like to play around with my Raspberry Pi and love to automate stuff at home.
Ever since my first real encounter with HipHop in 1996 I've been hooked. I love energetic and authentic hip-hop based on real stories. My all-time favorites are: Jay Z, 50 cent, Drake, Opgezwolle, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Young Jeezy and DMX
I read a lot. I love it. I own a kindle. I read a lot of blogs and I'm sucribed to MIT Technology Review. My favorite online sources of inspiration are:
Work hard, play hard doesn't go well with neglecting your body and mind. I read a lot about the newest scientific breakthoughs and research on fitness & nutrition. I continue to improve my health and body by engaging a healthy lifestyle with some (more than) ocassional beers :-). My two favorite physical activities are Crossfit and Football.
We'll be in touch real soon!
