What am I doing now?
I am in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and focuSsing on the following things:
At Kinder we empower people to instantly and effectively act on the global challenges of our time by facilitating donations to charitable organisations. The more effective the organisation performs, the more it will be promoted on our donation platforms.
In collaboration with reknown universities, our research team has developed a state-of-the-art vetting framework to assess the performance of charitable organisations all over the world.
Tag The Love:
Build the most beautiful platforms for the stuff you love.
Tag The Love helps you achieve your online goals by helping you create a superior content platform fueled with powerful stories.
And then it facilitates you to manage it in the easiest possible way.
A goal is to expand the Tag The Love business to other countries besides The Netherlands. In The Netherlands we've proven to be very successful in what we do and the English speaking territories are next on the menu. I'm trying to find the right partners / ambassadors / launching customers, so if you can hook me up, please contact me.
Part of the international expansion is a fundraising round. Until now we didn't accept any investments, but we are open for growth capital.
Interested? Let's talk.
Týrsday is the online sports content & activation company.
Founded officially in 2014, Týrsday was born out of many fruitful projects between Brightguys and Mobypicture. Those projects have proven to be successful because of the combination of both a smart strategy and the cutting edge Mobypicture technology.
The technology itself amplifies the stories told, but without a good strategy, there is not much to amplify. The combination of both makes the projects the success they are.
Týrsday is best of both worlds coming together.
We empower our clients with three services:
1. Concept and strategy
2. Owned media platform
3. Content development.
Our main focus is expanding our client portfolio. The techniques and procedures to really help our clients engage with their audiences became very mature and succesful. Right now we're hiring smart content owners and editors in chiefs. If you know people, let me know.
The TINKEBELL. foundation was established in August 2017.
The main way we choose to achieve this ambitious idea of saving the world is to help the Dutch artist TINKEBELL. who has 'saving the world' as mission.
We, as a foundation, are there to support in every way needed. We are there to find funding. And with the help of our network we try to optimize the impact of every project that has the ability to save another part of the world.
I'm the treasurer.
The human mobility marketplace is changing rapidly. The number of cars on the road globally will likely double by 2040 and there will be even more diversity in the types of vehicles people use to travel; e.g drones, flying taxis and so on. Large corporations and new entrants are at the forefront of these developments. However, adding more vehicles, without integration, only adds to the problem of traffic congestion and pollution.
VMC offers a comprehensive solution for the future of human mobility, which is open source, secure and decentralized by design.
I’m in their advisoryboard.
Amélie, Mika, Eli and Mia
They are growing up so fast!
Amélie is twelve years old and just started highschool. She is the sweetest, most empathetic girl I know, often teaching me I can be blunt and too direct.
Mika is eleven years old and has been tested to be very smart/gifted. This often gets in his way in school with repetitive stuff and thanks to the testing he now is pardonned at a lot of these tasks. Besides his iPad, he loves Breakdancing, has three courses a week.
Eli is pure sunshine. He just turned four and is going to school now. He also discovered the iPad and has learned to read and write.
Mia is born on the 12th of December. We are over the moon in love.
These are my current priorities and I will update this page as my focus changes.

This post is inspired by Derek Sivers The /Now Page movement
"People often ask me what I’m doing now. Each time I would type out a reply, describing where I’m at, what I’m focused on, and what I’m not. So earlier this year I added a /now page to my site. A simple link. Easy to remember. Easy to type. It’s a nice reminder for myself, when I’m feeling unfocused. A public declaration of priorities."
