I graduated from the University of Leiden in 2008 with a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. I have been on the road throughout the years.

At the moment, I am in Latin America together with Jurriaan van Eerten. He writes; I take the pictures, and together we have published multiple stories in newspapers, magazines and on the internet.

In the press

 Published stories in: Trouw, De Volkskrant, Leidsch Dagblad, VICE NL, VICE, Al Jazeera, Het Parool, SAMPOL, KidsWeek, OneWorld, OneWorld Magazine, The Tico Times, De Tijd.
