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


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.


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


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 :)


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!
