Urban Explorer Maastricht

I am a green, green man with love for nature.

As a botanist I work at the intersection of nature and culture. This I find in Maastricht, a city known for it's burgundian lifestyle. Nature, it’s surprising parks inside the city boundaries with extraordinary flora and fauna. Culture, from the Romans to present day with fashion, gastronomy and room for new initiatives. In all this, tradition is very important and connects our modern culture and lifestyle to history. For me Maastricht binds me to my roots and gives me inspiration to proceed in my work.
