As a passionate filmmaker, I’ve always been captivated by the art of storytelling. My journey began when I was just 20 years old, and I quickly discovered that I could turn my creative passion into a fulfilling career. Although I have a formal degree in Communication & Multimedia Design from HvA in Amsterdam (graduated in 2014), I’ve found that my most valuable learning experiences have come from the projects I’ve undertaken outside of the classroom.
Over the past eight years, I’ve had the pleasure of creating a range of film projects that have been described as poetic, socially engaged, and expertly crafted. I approach each project with a great eye for detail, always pushing myself to challenge my skills and take on new creative opportunities.
In addition to my love for filmmaking, I’m also deeply passionate about theatre and performing. I believe that exploring different creative disciplines can help me grow as a maker, by broadening my perspective and deepening my understanding of storytelling. By leaping over disciplinary boundaries, I’ve found that I can bring a unique perspective to my work and enrich my creative experiences. Whether it’s exploring new techniques in theatre or experimenting with different approaches in film.
