An entrepreneurial nerd that is always on the look for unique experiences and lives for wonderful stories..
Nice to meet you!
Hi! I'm Fabiën
A 23-year-old whirlwind born and raised in a small village in the Netherlands who wants to discover everything about marketing and storytelling and prefers to be in a theme park or unique hotspot.
For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for fairy tales. I hung on my parents’ lips when they read from the big storybook. Once a year we visited the Efteling and that was the most magical day of the year. If you asked little me what I wanted to become when I grew up the answer was: ‘Director of the Efteling’.
As soon as I found the study that corresponded to it, I did not hesitate for a moment and registered myself. During the projects with real life clients, the internship opportunities and my minor in Storytelling and Consumer behavior I discovered my passion for storytelling and marketing. I also started my side-job at Camping de Paal, one of Europe’s biggest (and best if you ask me) campsites for children, where I was able to enchant many guests in entertainment. After I got my bachelor’s degree, I felt that I wasn’t finished with my study books yet and wanted to immerse myself in the science of leisure and tourism during a pre-master and master. Did you know that in the long run, a day out makes you much happier than spending money on products?
What makes me happiest is when people have a good time, get totally immersed in the most exciting stories and return home with the best memories. To be a part of that proces would be a dream..
Where to find me?
I live in New York City
Since October 2022, I’ve moved to the city that never sleeps for a year to do a traineeship.
I followed the bachelor Leisure management at the Breda University of Applied Sciences for four years with a focus on Attractions and Theme parks Management. Afterwards I finished the Master of Science Leisure & Tourism Studies.
It’s my dream to help entrepreneurs and companies in the leisure industry with concept development, experience marketing and storytelling while traveling the world as a Digital Nomad…
