Kai grew up in Leiden, NL and studied economics and a minor in urban planning at the University of Amsterdam. Next to his studies, he had a part time job researching socio-cultural trends for a leading Dutch trend watcher. Over time, cities and specifically how and why they transform themselves, became the topic of his interest. In 2004, he started Shinsekai Analysis, an urban strategy advisory boutique, that advises on developments at the cross roads of art, urbanism and economics. Next to that, Kai organizes a course for young art collectors.
