AKA NPJ, Niels is a quite well-known mountain biker. In the course of his travels across the world, he started dabbling in multiple media to share his adventures and stories with the world. In the process, he discovered his other passion - design. Today, he runs his motorcycle design studio by the name of NPJ Designs, where he also works bicycles, fashion and home accessories.
In 2018, during his visit to India, he fell in love with the infectious energy of the country and decided to make it his second home. He was quite moved to see people riding two-wheelers without wearing helmets. In an effort to contribute positively, he decided to bring about a change.
