Hey, how you doing?

I'm Nalden - a father of two, husband to one, founder & investor of some.

How can I make this about me?

Born in 1984, I grew up in The Netherlands and started blogging in my teens. Today this site is my playground, where I occasionally share musings. It's how I nurture curiosity, toy around with ideas and prac­tic­e the craft of writ­ing English.

Along the way, I started WeTransfer, Adelee, Present Plus, FC Hyena and a bunch of other things. In between, I sat on the board of the Stedelijk Museum. What a ride!

Next to starting companies, I sometimes invest in them. I like meeting interesting people who build adventurous things that can turn into exciting businesses.

These days I'm contemplating what's next while exploring the Swiss Alps. If any of this makes you wonder, I prefer email over Linkedin or follow along on Twitter.
