In addition to working for clients, I also spent 8 years as a tutor at the Dutch training institute for patent attorneys (SBO). From 2007 to 2015 I was a member of NLO's management team, gaining experience of the day-to-day running of a business. I am currently a substitute member of the Dutch delegation to the epi Council and the Dutch representative on epi’s European Patent Practice Committee (EPPC).
Over the many years in which I have enjoyed working on patents, I have gained experience in a wide range of technical fields, including electrical engineering, energy, telecommunications, medical technology, signal processing, physics and computer-related inventions (software) for many different SME businesses and research institutes.
Weather (and my work) permitting, I enjoy viewing the world – and gaining a totally different perspective – from a glider.
