My Purpose: I am a steward of life
I am here to help to create a financial system that values and enhances life. It’s our responsibility to live in a way that preserves the planet for at least the next 7 generations. Investment is a tremendously powerful tool to steward this, if we act from a place of compassion and joy. The story of the GoldenDeer beautifully reveals the essence of this.

The positive impacts fuel my heart and motivation. My intuition leads the way. My mind helps me to bring investment and social business into action and achieve the intended results.
Working with numerous impact investors and entrepreneurs globally has taught me that the unlikely marriage of profit and 'doing good' is indeed possible. I am motivated by my experience of turning a disadvantage into an opportunity through the principle of applying a social business solution.
Miracles are possible.
To gain further clarity about who I am, what I want and how to be in this world, I have dedicated much of my free time to meditation and personal development. This practice of bringing light to my strengths, shadows and heart's desires has guided and supported all of my business endeavours. With the alignment of my inner being and my life's work, I have unlocked infinite potential.
We are all magicians.
I feel rich both, in- & outside!
My personal journey
My life is an ongoing journey of connection, opening my heart and seeing the abundance around me. Being in nature and impact investing had been the entry points as nature allowed me to just be and impact investing gave me purpose.
I consider nature, including us humans, as the real wealth. It’s beautiful, life-serving (sometimes threatening). Nature’s capabilities exceed any technology. Observing nature brought me great wisdom and peace.
Impact Investing is my strongest teacher for compassion. While it brings solutions to pressing problems, it confronts me with the shadows of today’s systems. Meeting those with an open heart, revealed to me the resilience of people and nature and I could find beauty and strengths despite the hardship.
