    Trailblazer, speaker, coach and book author in the field of sustainable living


    In 2019, I started my 365 Sustainable Decisions Challenge, making my daily life more and more sustainable every day for a year. My motto: „A better world starts with yourself“. To this date, I'm sharing daily ideas to inspire others. Also, I share experiences and viewpoints as living more sustainably is about actions being taken, but even more so about the underlying mindset. Due to my psychological background (PhD), I can combine knowledge from both aspects to make a more sustainable lifestyle easy.

    IT-Security Consultant / Penetrationstester

    SySS GmbH

    As a professional hacker (or 'white hat' hacker), I am engaged in finding and reporting vulnerabilities, so that these vulnerabilities can be resolved before 'black hat' hackers come along and misuse them to for example steal data. For tv interviews have a look at http://www.erlijn.nl/itsec-interviews.html; for 0-days that I found and reported to the manufacturer, take a look at http://www.erlijn.nl/itsec-advisories.html.

    Project officer, Department of Higher Education Didactics

    In this position, my role was to support students in developing skills that they need to finish their degrees (e.g., math and soft skills). Also, I was responsible for setting up an educational programme to teach students how to teach. I really enjoyed the challenge to offer support in the most efficient and effective way so that students can progress as much as possible.
