introducing

You wish to introduce a (new) product or service into the (unknown) market? Allow me to help you.

connecting

Putting customers and brands together through communication, (visual) branding, business development (expanding commercial networks), sponsoring packages, social media, copywriting, affiliate marketing, webdesign and media barterdeals. Strong in storytelling, putting feelings into words and visuals.


sharing

Please bear in mind that I don't just communicate, advertise, brand or sell. I listen to your story and then share from my best knowledge what I know would improve your brand connotation, whilst channeling your introduction into the market. Over two decades of eagerness to inspire in branding and communication - kindly yours.


how I got here


I tumbled into communication due to my eagerness to listen and learn and due to my honesty to only present you the best strategy needed. During the years I understood the importance of brand equity, the subtleness of a word, the strength of a visual, the feeling behind a statement. And my parental education and extensive worldwide travels (six years) brought me a linguistic, cultural, relational and historical bagage, spiced up with an inspiring sense of creativity.

All these intrinsic qualities moulded me into a hands-on marketer and business developer. A genuine one, from the heart. So I let go of certainty. What I experience since isn't uncertainty; it is openness, emotional release, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox. Without a Master, but I master a lot. And so I have proven whilst working for several significant companies.

In 2015 I started something new. Nothing planned, not a childhood dream, but an evident career path I rolled into working as a commercial actor and model. No traffic jams and lots of time, just finding out how life is on the oher side of the camera.

But again corporate world called me as the itch wouldn't leave, so in 2020 I got back to my true professional love: connecting and introducing companies as partnership and media manager for the leading online wine and coffee seller.

In the meatime I followed my heart, getting married, moving to Gouda. Now I am enjoying family life in the green heart of Holland whilst doing what I can do best, with who I want the most around me and working on being who I want to be.

what really mattersbecause we're all part of something bigger


Mia and me



My aim is to broaden my scope and emotional intellect with knowledge sharing, facing every problem as an opportunity to grow towards my inner me. What drives you, how I get into your drive, how to explain that drive and defining where we're driving towards - human interaction as a whole - is what keeps me going. Passion and dedication in what I do and genuine interest in others thrives me the most.


Enjoy, feel, connect, interact, spread, create, share, accept, let go, allow, as a catalyst of emotions. Free yourself from certainties dictated by degrees and fellowships. Seek your inner balance and live by your rules within your morals and standards. Read my thoughts on human interaction on www.lichaamengeest.be.


Every personality is unique, gifted with several talents. I'm living proof that as a youngster I had no idea what could inspire me. During years of wandering and extensive travelling, I unlocked myself, understanding what norms and values I stood for and realised what would make me stand out. My frustration is that lots of people will never discover their own talents. Explore yourself, but also seek the talent in others. Listen to the silent workers in the corner, because they too have remarkable talents you didn't know of. Because you didn't listen. We're too precious.


At the MIA Awards, for the thirteenth consecutive year I was elected Greatest Dad of the Year. Award handed out by Mia Federica Mazereel (°2007), now chairwoman of the board with her outspoken vision. Raising my own blood is very challenging and inspiring, as she gives me no space for promotion, lay-off or time-out.
