_I always wanted to be a journalist. Unfortunately, all my teachers from elementaryschool up to lecturers from the Academy of Journalism didn’t have my level of confidence.
I want to thank all of them for their mistrust, it gave me the perseverance to go and show them my full potential and eventually finish my journalism study.

_As of 2016 I’ve finished documentaries about cycling team Giant-Alpecin called ‘Keep Challenging’ and electronic Music from Rotterdam called ‘The Beats Of The Binnenweg’.
Currently I’m working as a reporter for Open Rotterdam, Volkskrant online and cyclingteams Giant-Alpecin and LottoNL-Jumbo. I am most proud of the documentary series I.N.D.O. I made with Christie Haalboom and directed. We explore the cultural heritage of the Dutch-Indies through the eyes and stories of different generations. In 2016 we broadcasted the second season.

_I operate on the crossroads of journalism, documentary and corporate and work as a director who can film and edit.
