About Jeroen

Creativity. Critical thinking. Curiosity.

I left Belgium after graduating from Leuven University (Master in Laws) in 1997 and co-established a justice centre in a small rural village near Cape Town, initially rendering legal aid in the field of human rights, but since 2005 solely focused on research and human rights education: www.umnyama.org.

www.onlinebrandambassadors.com saw the light of day in 2005, and allowed me to take on more creative challenges – graphic design, programming, advertising, photography and copywriting. From humble beginnings across a vast spectrum of radically disparate projects, I now mainly work for a selection of long-term clients in the food, wine and hospitality industry.

When, at the age of eighteen, I was told that “Philosophy is a hobby, not a job” I parked that idea onto the backseat – next to my electric guitar and world peace – and went off to do a job. Twenty-six years later, I find myself studying philosophy and applied ethics at the Universities of Oxford and Stellenbosch: www.jeroenseynhaeve.com

When not at work, I walk, read and write, travel, and cook for friends and family.
