Stuff I like

Travel the world

I love being out, meeting new people, seeing new places. While feeling free is a matter of mind, not of place, it sure helps to be in some foreign country or surf a foreign sea.

Surfing

Living near the coast, for me surfing is like breathing. An essential part of life. Being on the water, between the elements means needing the mindfulness and drive to do what you set out to do or get flushed away.

Friends

Friends have always been an important part of my life. While I love being alone sometimes, friends will give me the much needed fun and feedback I need.

Generating new ideas

I love working on new ideas and see where opportunities arise. One of those undertakings has led to Gentleman's Agreement: www.gentlemansagreement.nl
