Welcome to my website, which is a shameless plug for projects I’m working on and a way to peddle stuff. I produce features for radio, podcasts, film, festivals and writings. Many of my works are idea-story driven. From very short (1 min) to any length. Documentary and essayistic, and to a smaller extent fiction. I like to mix things up. In addition I work as a guest tutor, interviewer and moderator. I have a background in film and television, and studied philosophy (MA) at the University of Amsterdam, and film and photography at the St. Joost Academy of Fine Art.
My credits include wonderful radio documentaries for VPRO Toendra; the much acclaimed Dutch Public Radio shows Plots and the 1 minutes; radio plays for Woord.nl; my films screened at networks, cinemas, festivals and galleries; such places as Best of IDFA on tour, SXSW, Porto Bello Festival, Cologne Conference and Dutch Public Networks.
Nominated for Prix Europa in 2016 & 2015 with radio-essay North (NPO radio doc) and the radio play Föhnkrankheit. In 2013 the radioshow VPRO Plots was awarded the Zilveren Reissmicrofoon (Nipkow) and a Jan Kassies Stimuleringsprijs. In 2009 my first long documentary film Calling E.T. screened at SXSW, TopTen Cologne international Film & Television Conference and at the Best of IDFA on tour. In 2002 the short doc A night with Michael was awarded a Golden Olive.
