I’m a business builder, digital media entrepreneur and technology innovator. I’ve been building, launching and re-launching six businesses over a span of 15 years. The businesses I’ve built are leaders in their verticals.
I like creating things. As a teen, I was passionate about science and space. For me it’s always been about being in the forefront of innovation.
For the past 15 years, innovation has come in the form of media and technology. This led to my joining forces with Andy Russell to build and launch a digital media venture fund, Trigger Media, and to co-founding its two portfolio companies, InsideHook and Fevo (formerly Host Committee).
Before Trigger, I was at the management consultancy McKinsey & Company in Amsterdam, London and New York. I was not your ‘typical’ consultant. My expertise was in growth. I identified new business opportunities and led the launch of businesses for clients including a new Internet access provider for the Dutch market, a new daily national newspaper, and revamped digital content-commerce-community sites for a European magazine publisher.
