Cycling is my passion, and I like to share it with you.
I learned to ride a bicycle at age of 6 (rather late for a Dutch boy), but never stopped using it. Nowadays cycling is not only a means of transport nor a hobby of me any more. I work for the Province of Utrecht as senior policy maker and contribute to national cycling policies. Before, I worked at the world famous and award winning city of Houten as traffic planner. I cooperate with the Dutch Cycling Embassy to bring the Dutch bicycle culture abroad on the basis of short-term lend. My specialties are integrated spatial plan development and complete street design. I like creating bicycle-friendly infrastructure and I am specially fond of the combination of public transport and cycling. In the past I worked for Fietsberaad Internationaal/ Dutch Cycling Embassy on ThinkBike workshops in Washington DC, Dublin, Tampere, Helsinki, Joensuu and Espoo for bicycle events in Tokyo, Miami, Bangalore, Tartu and Miskolc. I am also a regular speaker at conferences at home and abroad. I also cooperate with the local branch of Fietsersbond in my hometown, Driebergen.
