My Services

I'm a generalist or human swiss army.

So if you are looking for someone who does only one thing: that's not me.

But if you're looking for someone who knows a little bit of everything, can see the big picture and how it is all connected: look no further.

project management

For 15 years I have managed projects worldwide: big, small, short, long, ... What they all had in common was the volatile context and me adapting to circumstances, motivating teams and delivering on time.

Communication

Coming from a job with 200+ email per day, going to a job where you have to calmy negotiate with armed actors, I can communicate on all levels and in three different languages.

Logistics

I have shot TV commercials all over the world, coordinating material and people in the process. In the NGO world, I have managed supply chains, designed, budgeted & built houses, ...

Development

I've worked in various programming languages, used plenty of operating systems, dabbled in most of the Adobe tools, studied computer science and know what I'm talking about.

My Experience

Staying with one comany for life is not in my DNA. I like to explore, change, stretch, adapt and generally do cool new stuff!
