About me


I help solving problems when people or companies ask me to. 


I can’t really explain how I do it, because I don’t exactly know how it works, but it works and I suppose that is the most important thing.


Things I know a thing or two about:

  • Assisting business owners with refining strategy and process improvement while taking into account employee abilities, potential and preferences

  • Counseling for non-duality study retreats, ideally all the way up to the point of ego awakening

  • Simplifying complex problems and defining next steps

  • Getting unstuck when you’re stuck

If you feel this could be use to you, I'll be happy to help out. Just send me an e-mail at or book a 30-minute consult for a one-off advice.


"You can only find a solution with a realistic perception of the problem"

My experience

I've dedicated much time in the past to understanding topics such as:

  • business model innovation;

  • inquiry-based learning;

  • positive psychology and socratic coaching;

  • banking & monetary economics; and in particular

  • non-duality, the backbone of Eastern philosophy. 

I've been advising small and medium-sized businesses for 12+ years, even before I got my Master's degree in this field. I've led various workshops, ranging from strategy sessions to discomfort trainings, have been teaching occasionally and held presentations on numerous topics.


Since 2017, I've worked a lot as study counselor to people who wanted to grasp non-duality up to a point where it is felt. Most of this took place in Ibiza, Spain where I lived for a few years and hosted a small b&b for clients and other guests. From these experiences arose the idea of a book, which was published in July 2022.


A book designed for making up your mind about the nature of consciousness


Since so many real-life problems of clients hinged on the same problem of not having made up one's mind about the nature of consciousness, I took some time off to collect the arguments and turn them into a book for the sole purpose of decision-making.

The arguments are stripped from any dogmatic claims. It's up to you to decide what's true. They have been divided into ten topics, ranging from hard facts to experiments and surprising interpretations of renowned thinkers and scientists.

Regardless of your interpretation and conclusion, the book might resolve many problems and dilemmas as well as make clear what to do next.

The book is available in paperback and e-book format.
