Some Articles in English
Even before moving to the United States, I had written or translated some of my articles in English. Some were already on this website. It was nevertheless hard to find them, because my site is in Dutch and navigating through pages without understanding the language must be hard (although Google Translate may be a big help). But the leap over the ocean changed that, a bit.
Working in an international environnement makes that I now write articles in English, so it was time to publish a page that collect all my articles. This created the opportunity to collect all those articles on one page and guide you directly to it.
This page is not limited to diving, or to any other topic. It's just a collection to better help you, as an internaut in search of information.

- Stories about two kids who discover diving. Please follow the link.
Diving is a hobby with various possibilities. There are plenty of good incentives to take your gear and get underwater. In this new series titled ‘My buddy’, I’m in search of diving enthusiasts who spend their limited time underwater for a special and specific reason. The idea is to demonstrate the enormous possibilities of our favourite sport.

- Article on Education and Training in HQ SACT's magazine 'The Transformer'.
During my 3 years in NATO's Strategic Headquarters I published 20 articles on the HQ's blog. HQ SACT is a transformational HQ, so I was expecting some thought provoking articles.
These article may be interesting for an audience outside the HQ, that is why after my departure I've decide to let them free on the internet.
These articles want to jumpstart your thinking and your exploration of limits of the box. Articles to move your head in agreement or to violently disagree with. History and the development of science show us that the confrontation of ideas lead to better ones.
I like to think of myself as a writer. Not that I have a special talent, but I like to write down my thought process. If I’m able to write something down, I like to think that my thinking is aligned. I also like to write off frustrations and worries. Always in a positive, thought provoking and personnel style. A style you may dislike, but nevertheless it is my way of expression.
Read. Enjoy. If you want to react, no problem. I only hope, you think about it.
