Managing Director at Euro Freelancers, a synergic network of independent EU affairs professionals and investors specialised in the collaborative economy and crowdsourcing solutions.

Secretary General at the European Forum of Independent Professionals, a European association advocating for policy, business and society to become more conducive to the self-employed way of working.

Named by PR News the most creative practitioner in EU affairs in 2013 and by the Eurasia Foundation global leader in 2012.

Formerly policy officer in the EU Commission and a lawyer by training, I am specialised in collaborative self-employment, cooperative solo-entrepreneurship, digital work on platforms and the impacts of flexible labor regulations on the future of work.

For the past 10 years, I’ve been leading government relations and advocacy efforts, advising policymakers on the issues that one-person businesses and their ecosystem face. In doing so, I am relentlessly building bridges between collaborative consumption and collaborative creation movements as a conduit to nurture skills, work and new forms of wealth.

Great passion for how freelancers in the sharing economy and blockchain decentralised networks can enable and disrupt markets and regulations. I serve on 2 EU expert groups, wrote over 250 blog posts, been quoted in major publications and I am a frequent public speaker on the subject (including TEDxMoscow 2013 and TEDxLeuven 2014), always thriving to be in the intersections of policy and business.
