I caught the film bug early. I’m one of those filmmakers that started out making short films with my friends in the backyard when I was in my early teens. In 2009 one of these films, a throwback to 80s action flicks called ‘The Assassin’, won my high school’s yearly talent competition in my hometown of Tilburg, The Netherlands. This is when I first saw a large audience responding to something that I had created. I knew in that moment that I would let nothing stand in my way of pursuing a career as a filmmaker.
After graduating high school, I studied International Media and Entertainment Management at NHTV Breda, and continued to make short films. In 2017 I decided I wanted to get formal film education in a country with a larger film industry. I moved to the United Kingdom to study Film and Moving Image Production at Norwich University of the Arts, from which I graduated in July 2020.
Through years of experimenting with film, working on my own projects and those of others as well as taking on commercial projects, I have built a strong sense of storytelling both in structure and visual style. I feel story and themes are key, whether in a short film, advert or music video. Finding and defining those elements is the most important task of a filmmaker, who can then take those elements and infuse it into every part of the project from the writing to the cinematography and the production design.
I am currently looking for projects to work on mostly as a writer/director and editor, but I also have experience as a sound designer, producer, assistant director, location marshal and actor.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of working with me, or just want to reach out please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
