Cycling is something I really enjoy doing. And I am always struck by how many people in media share this hobby, there are even whole media teams that have ridden Alpe d'Huzes!
Did you know that I…
very love to build Lego
Where would you go in a time machine and with whom/why?
May 17, 1960, to Radio Veronica's transmitting ship on the North Sea. I think it would be cool to see how radio history in the Netherlands started there. Gladly with Peter Mulder, with him I share much of my working life.

Joris's Recommendations

What is your favourite movie?
The Founder. Great story about the real origins of McDonald's, the sometimes unpaved road that organizations must take to become or remain successful.
What book would you recommend?
The Prey. Interesting and engaging account of Holland's pride ABN Amro.
Can you recommend a good restaurant?
Am very fan of Graphite, a speakeasy in Amsterdam, nice experience. But my real favorite I keep for me, at least I always have a table....

Last but not least

What is your favourite quote?
"Fail harder". Check vooral de video van W+K
