With a rich background as the son of doctors and growing up in a bustling household of six siblings, Leo's innate energy and curiosity were apparent from a young age.

His journey into neuroscience was sparked by his own experiences with ADHD, a diagnosis that fueled his passion for understanding human biology and optimizing performance. Leo's studies at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam illuminated the profound impact of lifestyle factors, particularly sleep, on cognitive function and mental health. This insight became the cornerstone of his work.

Through personalized insights and a deep understanding of neuroscience, Leo empowers individuals to take control of their health by shaping their behaviors, nutrition, and environment.

His mission goes beyond education; Leo combines his positive energy and drumming skills to create engaging workshops, lectures, and training sessions that offer participants a captivating "neuroscience crash course."

Leo's approach is not just informative but transformative. He connects with audiences on a personal level, instilling a sense of empowerment and motivation to enact lasting changes. With Leo's guidance, understanding, and enthusiasm, navigating the complexities of brain health and well-being becomes not only manageable but an exciting journey towards optimal living.

Leo is a true sleep expert and this was evident during a workshop Leo recently gave at Unilever on the importance of good sleep. I think sleep is 1 of the most underrated parts of lifestyle. His story had good content and Leo works evidence-based without making it complicated. He also delivers the content in a very creative way. Definitely worth inviting Leo to your company.

I recently got to experience a workshop by Leo. What a successful session! Leo knows how to captivate people like no other in his own authentic and inspiring way. You can hear (also by using his drum), see and feel that. His approach is also interactive, down-to-earth and to-the-point, explaining difficult medical terminology in an understandable way. If you want to learn to sleep well and therefore function better, take a look at his website or attend one of his webinars. I have benefited from it!
