For many years I worked in footwear business, designing and developing branded footwear (Disney, Warner Bros., Look, Donnay a.o.), I also ran businesses in service-sector and (Spanish) real-estate. Having lived and worked in many different places around the world I now live in the Netherlands where I keep myself busy in the non-profit / charital sector and musicindustry. Currently I assist people to get life back on track via the "Met Afval Wat Anders" project in close collab with KringloopZeist (Netherlands), am founding the NPO 'Friends for Friends org', ultimately providing a healthy inheritance to children worldwide), and launching on behalf and in support of FRIENDS for FRIENDS a kids fashion-brand. I also compose & produce music, and am authoring a novel. oh... and I'm learning to play the violin, since age 8, but unfortunately there's not very much progress. Yet.
