Stijn is born and raised in Belgium, but first of all he is a passionate rock climber, that loves being outdoors. Rock climbing offers him physical training, meditation, social life, travels around the globe and much more:
“Climbing is about exploring your limits. Your skills build up over the years and the focusing in the moment brings you to this state of mind where you are 'one' with the rock and its surroundings. At that moment you are fulfilled with bliss, a sensation of breathing your life and a oneness with the world…”
Besides that, Stijn is a skilled engineer. His professional studies and work have offered him a solid technical and scientific base to handle difficult questions, projects and challenges. He has a sharp, pinpoint mind and view on things. He explores in depth and does not give up until completely satisfied with the result.
