I am a strong believer that man has to constantly evaluate himself and his relation to the world around him. There is always something new to discover, to learn. Views are there to be changed. I find this process of change thrilling. It's the reason I decided to present my portfolio and show reel in chronological order. As a filmmaker I am always learning, discovering, and honing my craft.
I was born in Groningen, the Netherlands, were I attended a Waldorf school. I studied Film & Television at Edinburgh College of Art and spent an exchange year at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in India.
I have made short films in Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, Greece, Scotland, India, and Thailand. It is my wish to expand my portfolio and branch out to different mediums, and to experiment more.
Currently in the pipeline: a documentary about humanitarian volunteering; an experimental short about loneliness; an interactive mockumentary about climate change; a short fiction film about hedonism and millennials; a novel detailing my sailing adventures as an 8-year-old.
I feel a moral obligation to employ my film making skills for causes that make a positive contribution to the world. For this reason I founded a small video production company called Conscious Film.
