After working as a lawyer for over 12 years, I took a sabbatical which would change my life forever. I decided to follow my passions in life which are traveling, writing, speaking and creating new ways of thinking on for instance tour guiding, tourism and travel. In the fall of 2010 I set up my own tour guiding business 'Ghent-Authentic' in my hometown Ghent for those who want to discover Ghent in a more personal and above anything inspiring way. 

Along the way I became an expert guide in the Ghent Altarpiece of Van Eyck. At Ghent-Authentic you can book a private, exclusive visit at the Altarpiece. And who knows, we might meet in person before the Altarpiece :)

Besides that, I live to travel. The movement which goes along with intuitive solo travelling is an addictive abundant source of insights and creativity. The same goes for the to me very inspiring places as New York City and Oxford (UK) where I retreat myself a couple of weeks/months a year. They bring out the best in me :)

In 2017 I gave my first TED Talk 'A square meter of soul' at TedxGhent, which has been translated in several languages.
