I am a Dutch national with a Finance, IT, and Business Development background. I have worked as a co-owner, as an employee, as a management consultant, and on contract. Indirect reports varied from a handful to 1200 plus. I have worked in Australia, India and Europe across a wide range of sectors such as Oil & Gas, EPC, Banking, Insurance, and Tourism.
I was born in the sixties. No surprise perhaps I enjoyed reading Kerouc’s ‘On the Road’, Steinbeck’s ‘Travels with Charlie’, Michener’s ‘The Drifters’, and for that matter most of Hemingway’s books. The members of the Beat Generation developed a reputation as new bohemian hedonists, who celebrated non-conformity and spontaneous creativity. I relate to that quite a bit though instead of a Dharma Bum, I am much more a Happy Warrior.
Goa, where Vasco da Gama once landed only to be followed centuries later by Led Zeppelin, The Who and George Harrison, is a fascinating place with a constant influx of cosmopolitan thought. The former Portuguese colony is also known for its beaches, restaurant shacks with great food and low priced alcohol, and a relaxed lifestyle.
