Dutch hotel professional. 34 years old with a hospitality focussed way of life. Being 15 years old I knew I wanted to pursue a career in hospitality. Having done international traineeships within NH Hotelles en Hilton International, I started my professional career within Hilton. After that, I have now worked for +6 within a Dutch hotelchain running international branded hotels (Ramada / Crowne Plaza).

Now I would like to take the next step in my career. As of july 2017 I am available for a senior management position in an international hotel anywhere in the world.

Together with my wife I am a passionate traveler and would really like to see the world from a professional point of view as well. Love wine tastings / dinners / soccer / skiing and cycle racing.
