About me

Life keeps changing and happening.. it's interesting to see how it evolves. I used to live in Utrecht and work as an editor of study books and as a researcher.
In 2011 I did some work as a volunteer on farms and loved that a lot. I decided to stop doing research and editing work and search for work that I liked more. In 2012 I worked as a cook in a vegetarian restaurant.
Since 2013 I'm on the road with my partner Marc, traveling to communities, friends and eco/permaculture projects. I'm still freelance editing every now and then, working from couches, yurts, libraries and cafés. We're spending this year in Andalucia and Portugal hoping to find a community place to start calling home.

My interests

Hobbies:

cooking and eating for and with friends, music, hiking in beautiful countryside, animals in general, horses specifically, biking, hitchhiking, camping, growing my own food, meditation.

Books:

Anything that's a good read and can be called literature.

Music:

I have a very wide taste in music, from friendly easy stuff like Feist, Jack Johnson, Norah Jones etc to alternative music like Radiohead, Bjork, Smashing Pumpkins, and the rougher stuff: Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein. And then also some 60s&70s heroes, flamenco, other world music, old-fashioned jazz and danceable stuff like drum&bass and other groovy music. Since my taste is so wide, my collection is big, but far from complete :)

Films:

everything by Pixar, Lars von Trier, Coen Brothers, Tim Burton, Office Space, Monty Python, ... I can keep going for some time here.

Travel experiences

Past trips:

Many short ones in Europe! One hitchhiking adventure of 4 months through Europe. A nice month in Iceland. Lots of hitchhiking in general. Did a project in Jordan, teaching music workshops to the Syrian children in Zaatari refugee camp. Went to Kyrgyzstan (2 months) and India (2,5 months). Spent 5 months in London. Keep coming back to Andalucia. We're now there, looking around for a place to call home.

Planned trips:

Andalucia for now, Portugal later this year, maybe back to India again... we'll see!
