From Hacking Games to Project Management
and eventually Training & Teaching...
Early on I became attracted if not fascinated by computers and went from hacking video games and learning English along the way to working in my twenties as a software developer and a database architect. As the internet wave hit Europe, I quickly became a digital project manager and a game designer.
For the past 25 years, I worked as a consultant and independent project manager, applying agile methods for web development, game design and digital production. I have a Master of Science degree, in Mathematics and Computer Science, with a specialization in Project Management. I taught project management, agile methods and creative design as a guest lecturer for 10 years in France (Master of Video Games), the Netherlands (Utrecht School of Arts) and Singapore (Ngee Ann Polytechnics).
From Plant-Based Lifestyle to Consulting
As an avid-trail-runner, I started by experimenting with plant-based food for active people. While running a cooking studio in Haarlem, I wrote 12 books on plant-based cuisine and explored the emerging vegan scene in The Netherlands, France, California, Croatia and España...
I worked as the Executive Chef & Project Manager to launch Yi Athens Raw Vegan Café in Greece, MK Culinary Academy in Thailand and TOM's Juice Bar in St Barth and as a consultant for Apollo Group to develop the plant-based cuisine on board the Oceania and Regent cruise lines.
From launching Blue Lotus to Project Development and Coaching...
I imagined, developed and launched Blue Lotus Hua Hin, the first Learning Center for Plant-Based Cuisine in Thailand.
Which means, in no particular order: Hiring, Coaching the Instructor Team • Business Development • Quality Control • Teaching, Coaching students • Project management + Problem Solving • Storytelling, content creation and online communication • Curriculum Development: Pure Energy, Green Thai Cuisine, Chef's Training, Instructor Training + Business Coaching • Plant-Based Menu Development for the Resort + Training cook
And now? I am working as an independent consultant specialized in creative plant-based projects. I am based in La Palma (Canary islands, Spain, EU). Don't hesitate to contact me.
