I am a researcher, social entrepreneur, coach and teacher, interested in developing awareness, engagement and well-being in the current dynamic and complex world.

I am inspired by the research methods of Cultural Anthropology and the insights and practical exercises of the Zen philosophy. Much of my research focuses on the question of citizen freedom and autonomy in today’s digital society.

I develop my research, coaching, workshops and teaching in collaboration with several organisations, amongst which the Gr1p Foundation, the University of Amsterdam, and Zen.nl Amsterdam.
