For the past ten years, I have worked as independent consultant, educator and community builder in the global geospatial and Earth Observation industry. In 2023, I co-founded thriveGEO whose mission is to empower individuals and organisations to thrive with geospatial and Earth observation data. For the next years, I will focus building up thriveGEO! Our vision is bold! We aim to become the leading training provider in the geospatial and Earth Observation sector. Sign up for our newsletter.
