I was born and raised in Flanders, Belgium. After obtaining my Master Degree in Economics at the University of Leuven, I left for Wuhan, China to study the Chinese language. I returned to Belgium to get a Bachelor in Chinese studies in Leuven, and then continued studying Chinese at Xiamen University and Fudan University (Shanghai). In 2005 I co-founded Hutong School in Beijing and acted as Marketing Manager and later General Manager. In 2008, I returned to Belgium to obtain an MBA at Vlerick. As a Managing Director, my goal is to further promote the Hutong School worldwide, by establishing a wide network of agents, universities, Chinese language schools and companies doing business in China.
