Leisure

‘I am sincerely interested in construction and real estate. I am a member of various property networks and I have been involved in a large number of development projects in Rotterdam and its surrounding areas. This enables me to join my thinking with the client’s along very practical lines. I like to focus on solutions instead of problems. I live with my wife and three children in the picturesque fortified town of Willemstad. Our house is our private property project. It is a listed building from 1585 which over several years and with much love and considerable patience, has been fully restored from the ground up. In addition to Karate, I love to sail. The Walhalla Theatre in Rotterdam is one of my favorite places to be. So much so that we got married there.’
