I am a documentary director and creative producer with many years of experience in television and documentary making. Finding and filming interesting people with fascinating stories, getting access to their lives, have them share their dreams, fears, passions and hardships and creating a visual story that not only touches the viewer but also tells a bigger story about our current society is what I enjoy most about making tv- and documentary films. My personal passion is to depict people’s unstoppable resilience in always trying to make their world a better place.
I strive to be an original, determined team-player and know how to develop, direct and if necessary produce a divergent genre of non-scripted television programs and documentary series. As a director I have a decisive approach and I am always looking for creative solutions. My -maybe not so- hidden talents are my research skills, especially finding extraordinary stories, characters and locations and bringing them all together.
I have a congenital urge to cross borders, both literally and figuratively. By filming continuously in far away places, I have learned to adapt and to react to changing circumstances and situations. I love working under challenging circumstances with a preference for the unknown and I am always eager to take that one step further. And I have been fortunate enough to be referred to as a 'prize-winning media professional'.
Education: I received a Masters degree in International Relations and English Language & Literature in Utrecht. I also studied a year in the US at Old Dominion University in Virginia and a semester at Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain.
