Current position: None yet.
Favourite surf destination: uncrowded Supertubos in the morning and a long mellow pointbreak for my twin fin fish in the evening. However, my homespot in Holland works for me as well.
Surf travel: All over Europe, Morocco, California, Canary Islands.
Education / work experience: freshly graduated MD with an interest in Emergency Medicine and Public Health. Did some voluntairy work in Lesbos (Greece) during the refugee crisis and in Mekele (Ethiopia) and worked at an ER in Beijing for my eldest clerckship. I recently attended the course in Advanced Surf Lifesaving by the European Association of Surfing Doctors.
Any other information you would like to add about yourself: I see health not only as the absence of disease but as a state of well-being in which an individual is able to strive for his own ambitions and goals without being hindered by physical, mental or social/societal constraints. I hope that in my future practice I can help people to reach such a state of well-being, either by delivering hands-on medical care or by policy making.
