I’m a storyteller. I studied literature and had a professional career in journalistic and commercial writing, before I became a documentary photographer. Now I create still and moving images and text to communicate something about the world we live in. 

I studied photography with Forum Beeldtaal and the Fotoacademy. My autonomous projects were published both online and in print in newspapers (De Volkskrant, Trouw, De Standaard, De Limburger) and magazines (Dodho, Focus, Pf).
