What motivates people to make certain choices? And how do these choices reflect the world they live in, their context? These questions take center stage in my articles and films. Always with respect for those portrayed, I want to create stories that show the beauty and strength of people, also in their vulnerability.

My earlier work focused on;
- Short films; for exhibitions and (non profit) organizations. My short documentaries and film-portraits have been part of several museum exhibitions (a.o. in the Museum of Ethnology and the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal and the Drents Museum in Assen). My films tell timeless stories behind topical themes. Stories that focus on what connects us.
- Text; interviews, portraits and stories about societal trends. I published in a variety of Dutch newspapers and magazines, such as ‘het Parool’, ‘de Pers’, ‘FD Persoonlijk’, ‘Vrij Nederland’ and ‘Volkskrant Magazine’. I also write texts for exhibitions.
