About

I’m a Dutch audiovisual designer working as a screenwriter, director and editor. I graduated with honours from the University of the Arts Utrecht as a screenwriter/director in 2016. After my graduation I got  funding for the short film ‘In Summer‘ which premiered on the Netherlands Film Festival 2018. I also founded my own video agency The Waves | Video Agency, where you can see all my/our commercial work.
With my films I want to tell stories that can’t be expressed in words, through the use of images and sounds. I’m interested in  relevant stories of society and the bigger questions of life, in which our language is too simple to cover the full meaning of those stories. I see myself more as a story seeker, rather than a storyteller. I sculpt the story during each phase in the making of the film. By taking the right input from every collaborator to let it organically evolve in the eventual sculpture of time.
