About me

I'm an angel investor and startup advisor based in Amsterdam. Previously, I was an early team member at Airbnb in San Francisco and helped the company grow from 30 to 3,000 employees. Recently, I’ve built the international operations at Siilo. Before that, I co-founded the peer support startup Campfire. I’m a member of the AirAngels and Operator Exchange angel syndicates.

Daniel was one of the first team members at Airbnb and instrumental in building our early team. By applying creativity and hustle, he was able to identify and close some of the best talent out there. I recommend working with Daniel if you want to raise the bar of your team.
