About meAs an eternal traveler and restless soul, I am always searching for ways to design my life. I have lived and worked in 7 different countries, and traveled to many more. Discovering new places, new people is what I love. My favourite thing is checking out local supermarkets for food products, have a taste of the local cuisine, and look at the arts & crafts shops. Of course a bit of sightseeing (historical, cultural, pure design, artistic,...) is a must too. Inspired to work with semi-precious metals, wood and other recycled materials, I have turned my creative energies towards craft based design, setting up a home and workshop in the countryside. Appropriately, My name means Hope. "Hope is the dream of a soul awake" is the personal statement. With Eternal Traveler - Design your life! I aspire to create a creative environment for functional art and life design. And with this reach out to like minded people.

These days I go biking. To get fit, spend calories, the best excuse to eat afterwards. But also to let my mind run wild riding against the wind, between the trees, through puddles,… We have some lovely days. But other … Continue reading
At the start of last summer (which never really was a summer), my dad’s sister died. For mysterious reasons (probably called “mama”) we hardly ever visited his side of the family. I went to the funeral anyway. The eldest son … Continue reading
I sold my gold. And so started a voyage. Where better to start than Egypt and the time of the pharaohs. The recent Arab Spring still scares tourists away. Sometimes I think governments, journalists create a psychosis. Don’t go there! … Continue reading
