I have a background in Dutch linguistics and literature and work as a freelance writer,
journalist and editor. In the past years I wrote amongst others for the Dutch national
daily's de Volkskrant, Trouw and NRC Handelsblad, the local newspaper Den Haag Centraal
and the newssite on Latin-America Noticias. I wrote on a broad variety of subjects and from many locations, both inside and outside
the Netherlands. During two years I worked as a reporter at the national daily
de Volkskrant at the foreign, national and political desk.
I like to be immersed in complicated subjects and make them accesible for a broad audience.
I look for stories that inspire and touch and always enjoy the process of writing,
the wrestling with words, images and information until the right story emerges. I also
enjoy working on texts, productions and communication of others and have experience in editing and advising.
