My name is Marc van der Meer, 52, Dutch, social entrepreneur and freelance project manager in digital communication. I’m living with Carmen in the nice city Dortmund in Germany, I’m dad of 2 teens, Ajax Amsterdam fan, I love cycling, traveling, cooking and drawing.

As THE FLYING DUTCHMAN I'm troubleshooter and experienced project- and quality manager specialized in digital communication and working for clients like e.g. Mercedes-Benz. If you want to hire me or need more information, please check these websites:,

NGO's, Charities are very welcome to get in touch with me.

At home in Dortmund I cycle in the fascination landscape of the Ruhr-area. It helps me to reflect things in life and escape from the daily stress of life.

Carmen and me travel a lot. We have been cycling e.g. in the awesome rocky scenery of Ireland, crossed the streets of NYC during the TD 5 Boro Bike Tour 2017 and the Vätternrundan 2017, a cycling Marathon of 300 km, in Sweden. All tours were impressive in it’s own way. A lot of cycling tours around the globe are on our plan. Next to come is a biking tour in Ireland again. You can follow us via Facebook:

While spending our time on our bikes and enjoying our free-time, Carmen and me want to do something good for others. For that reason we've started the initiative "Kilometer for Doing Something Good." More info you find here:

Also I’ve started the non-profit international driven and initiative „Volunteers' Help", which honors those who are the backbone of society and who work with passion to help across the world: the volunteers.

"Volunteers’ Help" makes it possible for anyone older than 18 years, pupils, students, employee or retired to travel anywhere in the world, in order to do a voluntary job for people in need while getting the travel- and accommodation cost back. This global movement will open eyes, bring cultures and religions together and hopefully makes this world a little bit better and more emphatic.
