About me

Hey there, lets describe myself by my current activities: at the moment I'm involved in a Masters in Cultural Anthropology, an internship as web editor at a documentary series knowns as "VPRO Tegenlicht", designing websites, enjoying film watching, photography and filming and zen buddhism. Also trying to learn Turkish.

Het Lelietheather from Chinese-Dutch writer Lulu Wang, Ontdekking van de Hemel [Discovery of Heaven] by Harry Mulisch, Joe Speedboot, the historical fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin and any books by Robin Hobb.


Bob Dylan, John Frusciante, Harry Manx, Madeleine Peyroux, Eels, Muse, Kings of Leon, Red Hot Chili Peppers, oldies (Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Doors) and indie music so generally bluesy, jazzy and rock music. But really, I have quite a broad taste (or is that equal to no taste at all? :-) and are open to many kinds of sound.
