When I was young I always loved acting in school plays and youth theater productions. I wasn’t sure yet which job I would pursue later, but it would definitely would be ‘something in theater’. After getting my Bachelor degree in Theater Studies at the University of Amsterdam in 2009, I continued studying at the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Theater in Education (Theaterdocent) in 2014.
The past 10 years I’ve been working in Amsterdam, Weesp and Alkmaar as a theater director and teacher, with a big love for theater on location and community arts. After developing three big theater productions in different neighbourhoods in Amsterdam Noord, I decided to dive into the world of social design and learn how to build strong(er) crossovers between the art world and (public) organizations.
In February 2023 I graduated from the Master Crossover Creativity at HKU. With my background in the arts as inspiration, I want to bring people with different backgrounds together to work on creative solutions for the wicked problems of today. Besides freelancing as a crossover artist and teacher, I also work as a community builder for The Turn Club.
