What are the most valuable skills that you took from your education at RSM?
"My education at RSM has been valuable in many ways, but the most important value RSM provided me with is that running a business doesn't have to mean being driven by money. Integrating sustainable and corporate social responsible values in an organization is where my education made a big difference."

What was the most memorable moment at RSM?
"Finally finishing my last course after already being a member of the Royal Dutch Marine Corps."

How would your former classmates describe you?
"Probably as a person who was doing too many things at the same time and not spending enough time in class, but nevertheless a reliable and social study colleague."

Name three things that make you smile each day!
"Enjoying the combination of sport, fresh air and freedom in nature. My girlfriend. Being an entrepreneur and making people familiar with the mindset of NatuurlijkSportief."

What is your greatest passion in life?
"Being out there combining sport and nature is my greatest passion. Together with a former colleague from the Marine Corps I want to share the outdoor experience and make people aware of the other world that is out there and often very close. Getting people to leave the rolling train in their busy office for a moment and enjoy being physically active in nature is what drives me."

What is your 'I WILL'?
"I WILL try to make as much people as I can aware of the satisfaction that being outdoors will bring!"
