About me

Me on Lion's Heads, Cape Town

Born in The Netherlands and bred in Angola and Rwanda, I set foot on South African soil in 2004. What was supposed to be a 6-month stint, grew into something more permanent. And you can’t blame me, can you? South Africa is simply a paradise for freelance journalists like me. The pavements in this complex country are littered with stories.

Everyone here seems to have something interesting to tell. In addition, South Africa is incredibly photogenic. Come rain or sunshine: there is always something extraordinary to photograph.

Apart from being a journalist, I do copy writing, online content writing, research and translations. I have experience as a media liaison officer and PR person. Among other things.

Yup, indeed: I am a Jill of all Trades, a media junkie, a person wearing a wide variety of caps. Wanna know more? Click on my LinkedIn profile.
