After graduating from the Communication and Multimedia Design programme at the Hogeschool Rotterdam, I began my career working as a project manager and strategist for various companies in the creative industry. A big part of my jobs has been the setting up of new campaigns and brand activations and products for several customers in both the commercial as well as the public sector.
In my free time, I enjoy taking photographs and making films. The subject that inspires me the most is the city that I call home: Rotterdam. As for client work, I love to do event registration in combination with music videos. My favourite way of telling stories is through ad hoc and on the go shooting for both photo and video.
