I’m a journalist currently based in São Paulo. Following my law studies in Rotterdam I wanted to see the world. After a year in India, I spent some 20 years in the Middle East, before moving to Brazil.
My work has appeared in both Dutch and English language media, including: Trouw, De Groene, De Standaard, Hard Gras, NRC, The Blizzard, MO Magazine, Middle East Eye and Mongabay.
I speak 5 languages, like photography, and in 2004 co-authored the documentary “2000 Terrorists” broadcasted by Al Jazeera.
