As an entrepreneur in the IT sector, I know technology and I see how that impact has on society. Today, the interaction between politics and technology is unfortunately often limited to politicians who are proud of their selfie with Mark Zuckerberg, but who do not dare or can really ask critical questions.

I’m a lawyer by training, specialised in European Law. I mostly work as an entrepreneur and investor in start-up IT companies. In my free time I play music, and meditate along the canal during cycling trips. I’m an elected member of the Belgian National Collective of DiEM25 and have been developing the movement in Belgium from the beginning.
