I grew up in a small town in Belgium, with a constant yearning to learn, grow, and travel the world. Taking on the digital nomad lifestyle has led me to more experiences and opportunities than I ever thought imaginable.When I’m not in work mode, I spend time learning, growing, and exploring the world around me. Travel, sports and fitness, and experimentation often come together in my daily personal life. A welcome departure from the strictly-defined structure of marketing and HubSpot Consulting.
Whenever I can, I visit friends in San Francisco to hike the Bay Area (though I’ll be hard pressed to give up my favorite secret spot) or snowboard and ski in Switzerland. I’ve seen Asia through the lens of Hong Kong, mainland China in Shenzhen, and Singapore, and have recently taken a keen interest in sailing; the next step is my full captains license. Combine all of these experiences with my love of photography and videography and you can expect some pretty cool sailing in the mediterranean shots from my Sony A7.
But more than the things I do or have done, I’m a person. I have a deep sense of empathy and I enjoy connecting with people; that’s why I do what I do. I’m also a guest lecturer in B2B marketing and Digital Marketing at my alma mater PXL University College. I thrive on the balance of giving back to those around me, just as much as I enjoy touring the wines of Saint-Émilion.

Largo Fit - E-commerce business (Sold)
Ever since I was studying for my business degree in marketing I wanted to start my own e-commerce business. During my studies I had my first attempt, a watch store called TimeShop. It failed miserably.
Then at the end of 2020 I saw an opportunity for a second attempt at this goal of mine and this is when Largo Fit was born. With about 7 years more e-commerce experience then my first attempt, this time it was a huge success. With a focus on customer experience, I grew Largo Fit to one of the best-rated e-commerce stores for fitness equipment in the Netherlands within its first year. Since building the brand was the most exciting to me, I sold the business shortly after to focus on new projects.
I'm still passionate about e-commerce however and I will probably launch a new project in the near future, this time also involving it's own product development.
In the meantime if you need any help with your e-commerce store, feel free to reach out to me.
