While studying Tax Law at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, I enjoyed the mix of law and economics. After graduating, I started my career at Ernst & Young, as a Tax Advisor within the International Tax Practice in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Chicago office. I succeeded my career as a Team Manager in the Dutch office of a UK listed search firm for four years. Coming from an entrepreneurial family, being able to run our own business very much appeals to me. Together with my girlfriend, who is a photographer, and our two children, I enjoy life to the fullest.
