After studying economics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, I followed the gemmology course at the "GIA", to graduate as a "Diamond Expert". I managed several diamond trading companies in Antwerp and Brussels. I operated a large Brussels jewellery store. Then I changed my professional orientation to become a private banker in Luxembourg and Switzerland. Now that I have retired, I have resumed my activities as a diamond dealer, but as a broker. I am proud to represent the Antwerp diamond industry as: "Ambassador for the Antwerp Diamond Industry".
I had written two finance fiction manuscripts, "Takeover of USA" and "Russian Gold". And later I discovered my talent for writing poems, publishing a collection "Art & Poetry", which deals with painting, photography and poetry at the same time.
