If I wasn’t a director I’d probably have ended up a psychologist. My interest in human behaviour was the reason to start studying psychology in 1992 at the university of Amsterdam. After two years of spending more time working on filmsets than debating Freud, I decided to re-think my career.
In 1999, after finishing Audio Visual Media studies at the HKU, I started as a commercial and musicvideo director. Since then I developed a wide experience working for Dutch, and international brands.
I’m a director who likes to investigate storyline and character in a script, taking the narration to a next level.
I love working together with actors and non-actors, creating a natural and strong performance.
I’m a character-driven storyteller, and after years of making light-hearted comedy, my interest shifted towards more socially relevant content.
Screenwriting was a next logical step for me. The last couple of years i’ve been working on my writing skills. The combination between writing and directing is powerful, and I love doing it both. My goal is to tell emotional and original stories that matter.
