His motto is “think global, act local”, borrowed from one of his sources of inspiration, Jacques Ellul. He is always interested in the important developments behind the news, in search for hope for a world in crisis. He works for De Groene Amsterdammer (weekly), Trouw (daily newspaper), Inter Press Service (news agency), Kijk (popular science magazine), and many more.

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
