About me...

In 2010 I graduated from ArtEZ School of Arts with a Bachelor of Theatre in Education degree followed by a Master of Arts in Education from Amsterdam University of Arts in 2016.

Throughout my career, I worked with a wide variety of people; in schools and communities, in- and outdoors, with amateurs and with other professionals. My work can be defined by the urgent mission of telling stories that need to be told and helping other people to discover their own, personal narrative; in music, text, or action.

Some inspiration

"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere."

Albert Einstein

“Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.”

Erica Jong

"The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers-creative and holistic 'right-brain' thinkers"

Daniel H. Pink

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."

Samuel Beckett
