Welcome to this website, which is a shameless plug for projects I’m working on and a way to give some background on myself. I’m philosopher and independent producer living in Amsterdam. I write and produce features for radio, podcast, print, cross-media and festivals. From very short (1 min) to any length. Mostly documentary and essayistic, and to a smaller extent fiction. I have a background in film and television as a director-editor for tv, cinema and festivals.
My credits include radio documentaries for the much acclaimed Dutch Public Radio shows Plots and the 1 minutes. And 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, Prix Europa and Cologne Conference.
In addition I work as a guest tutor and advisor on storytelling, media and philosophy, and conduct research. I studied film at the St. Joost Academy of Fine Art and philosophy at the University of Amsterdam (MA).
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.
