Professionally engaged in getting the best out of others as a therapist, manager and coach for over 30 years, it is not surprising that he likes to quote Ron Perlman: "Some people meditate, I smoke cigars".
A true bon vivant, he got to know the brown gold some 20 years ago and was immediately hooked. His visits to Cuba only served to strengthen his passion for the cigar. Following the founding of his cigar club, Aroma of the Leaf in 2015, he was constantly abroad searching for new and/or unknown cigars to have them tasted during the great and infamous cigar nights. With perhaps a slight fondness for Nicaraguan cigars, you rarely see him with the same cigar and this to gain as many new experiences as possible.
An enthusiastic cigar aficionado since 20 years and for the last 3 years mainly occupied with the (re)discovery of quality longfillers from the 'new world' such as Nicaragua, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica.
His aim is to give these 'new world' cigars the recognition they deserve in Belgium. The cigar club gave him the drive to give the Belgian market a taste of these unprecedented top brands through Casa de Puros. He uses his commercial flair mainly to convince others to do business with Casa de Puros. Like a well-dressed gentleman, he walks into every cigar shop knowing: "The cigar is the perfect complement to an elegant lifestyle". - George Sand
