Dual U.S.-Dutch citizen, speak Dutch & un petit peu francais
I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel and visit many places in the United States and Europe. Playing professional basketball overseas further gave me the opportunity to live abroad for 3 years (or 3 seasons: ~9 months/year). These multicultural experiences abroad have given me valuable life experiences and taught me many things about myself, others, and the connected world we live in.
Experience at small, medium, & large companies
