At LENS I am responsible for quality, processes, project commissioning and the energy transition. A role in which I can apply my knowledge and experience from more than 30 years of paid and voluntary work.

Before LENS I worked for 26 years at grid operator Alliander as content management consultant, new world of work consultant, grid designer, grid protection engineer and grid operation system engineer.

I do voluntary work in my hometown Diemen for, amongst others, Duurzaam Dorp Diemen: a network of inhabitants striving to make our home town Diemen more sustainable. I started the monthly Repair Café and did repairs there. I used to write for Windnieuws, the Dutch bi-monthly paper magazine about wind energy in the Netherlands. In 2018 I got involved in biomass burning and together with an international group of people started the Federation against biomass plants. Spin-off of this is an air pollution measuring network I set up in Diemen using citizen science tools.

In my spare time I like to walk (our dog, but also longer walks), together with my wife. During summer holidays we like to explore Europe without the use of airplanes. So campers, trains, and if necessary, a hired car.

And I like to drive my motorcycle. Sometimes alone, sometime together with friends from the motorcycle group Kawazuki. After riding three Yamaha TR1 (XV1000) motorcycles I since 2014 own a BMW R 1200 RT. I bought it after being a Police vehicle with 100 K kilometers and converted it to a civil type. I became a route expert on MyRouteApp navigation in 2019.

And during all this I try to listen to music as much as possible and sometimes play my electric bass in a band. Mainly rock, but all sorts of music can inspire me.
