I don’t make things.
I make things happen.

Hi! I’m an eighties kid who really enjoyed the early days of the internet. Because I didn’t finish my studies I’m trapped in an infinite loop to learn, un-learn & re-learn.

I got my start when I built my first website. This turned into bloggingand went on for over a decade. It was my way of connecting, sharing and helping others.

Although I’m not a designer nor developer. I always loved working with smart people and foster creativity to solve problems through technology.

Today I’m leading product & innovation at WeTransfer, the company I co-founded nearly 7 years ago.

In addition to creating & running companies, I sometimes invest in others’. Mostly people-focused, design-driven technology products built by someone I admire.
