Born in the province of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands and raised with the conviction to contribute to the world. For me that means making our living environment better. Be it through renewable energy, healthy food, rich nature, clean water or clear air, I want to contribute.
I have studied Environmental Sciences. After that, I have worked for sixteen years at a consultancy and engineering firm. Since 2010, I am politically active for D66 (Democrats 66). From 2011 until 2015 and in 2020/2021, I was a member of the Provincial Counsel of Noord-Brabant. From 2015 until 2020 and from 2021, I was and am a Provincial Executive of Noord-Brabant. Currently my focus is on the energy transition, the circular economy and the environment.
