Being a half-American and half-Dutch young man with nothing more than passion, a laptop and a dream, I’m proud to have created a digital empire that touches thousands.
Through my social media pages scattered across four platforms, I share the most amazing pictures shot by my favorite Netherlands-based photographers, and write informative articles on TheNederland.com for my 50K+ readers.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy reading our story!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been insatiably curious about entrepreneurship. I started selling anything I could on online marketplaces when I was thirteen. I registered at the chamber of commerce when I was of legal age and built my own webshop shortly after.
After several failed attempts at online businesses, including trading crypto coins and several pyramid schemes, I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability.

I created and grew my first Instagram page to 87K in no time—but I made a terrible mistake! I used an online tool for fake followers. My account—which was about global travel—was dead. And once an Instagram page is dead, it is nearly impossible to revive it.
But through that page, I came in contact with all the big players of Instagram. People like @fathomlesslife, @neskirimli and even @yesaccasey who had even been reposted by @instagram!
They taught me the right way to grow my Instagram page, so in September 2016 I started over. But this time I wanted to be different than all the redundant travel pages out there, so I narrowed my travel posting down to The Netherlands alone as a test—a test that worked out perfectly!
You may not know this, but we actually have more than just an Instagram account and a Facebook page. We also have a Twitter account, and recently even created a Facebook group and a LinkedIn page. We also have more than one Instagram account, check them out below!
