Born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. As a kid travelled the United States with my family for two years as late hippies in an european van in the the 80's. Didn't go to school then, but learned all about life. And although I have seen (and still see) the difficulties in interacting with each other, I have also seen hope. Hope in the fact that the majority of people, most of the time the ones that don't SHOUT that much, are looking for the same thing. Looking for respect, friendship and love. People just need to be seen.
The friction between our habit to label people and our search for respect, friendship and love is the motive of what I create as a filmmaker. As a director and as an actingcoach.
