‘I am an entrepreneur. I take on projects and assignments (when needed in collaboration with colleagues) and bring them to good results. My interest lies with research and development in high technology with special attention for the field of precision engineering and micro-nano-scale technology. I’m also a father of three children and living with my family in Eindhoven. We go out in nature, like to swim and play music. In addition I spend (personally) time renovating our house with application of interesting ‘technical gadgets’’.
