Hi, thank you for taking the time to read our bio. If there’s one thing I can say about myself it would be that I like to simplify things, boil things down to their essence. As a part-time teacher I loved it when I could cut through the clutter and make clear what the main insight is.
In my previous job as an Application Engineer I also took great joy in simplifying. What I’m most proud of is initiating a project to simplify a steel touch interface technology, making it suitable for kitchen appliances. Having travelled to South Korea, LG Electronics came on-board as one of our customers to buy-in this tech. I think it’s magic to see it back in LG’s products.
The combination of people, technology and business gives me tons of energy and I feel like I could not have a better job right now: facilitating this great R&D driven company on a mission to green pest control worldwide by offering environmental- and user-friendly alternatives.
On a personal level I like to take on healthy habits for nutrition, daily workouts, meditation and more. I love reading books and articles, mainly non-fiction, about philosophy, happiness, entrepreneurship and spirituality (currently reading Mythos, about the Greek mythologies). I also love riding my motorbike, hiking through nature and enjoying time with friends and family (I have four brothers, four sisters-in-law and five nieces and nephews so that's quite some time to spend ;).
And last but not least I love to learn about ancient history. The amount of wisdom and scientific knowledge that has been lost, now being rediscovered bit by bit, is mind-blowing to me.
