In 2002 I graduated for the part-time journalism course at the Hogeschool Windesheim in Zwolle. During my studies I worked as an editor and designer at Wegener in Enschede. In 2003 I worked as a culture journalist for the pilot project Twente Vandaag, an appendix to the national newspaper De Telegraaf in the Twente region. From 2004 to 2009 I wrote for culture newspapers and I provide all text including a column for the magazine IVY of AMI hairdressers. From 2005 to 2014 I worked as a freelance cultural journalist for Van Deinse Media in Enschede. In that period my interviews can be read in the glossy magazines Twentelife, WIT and Landgoed. Recently I wrote articles for the national magazine of the Professional Association for Visual Artists in Amsterdam. In addition, I have several other writing assignments, such as translations in German and English for the artist catalog of Sarah Grothus.
