Born in the Netherlands, at the age of 29, I became a modern nomad. I traveled around Europe to discover new places and try out new sports and activities. It didn’t stop there. 2 years later, I relocated to Dubai in the Middle East, right in between Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Combining sports and lifestyle I make my dream come true. Join me on an adventure, explore the regions and experience the stunning beauty of our little round rock in the Universe.
