I was born and raised in Almere, Flevoland, The Netherlands, while most of my familie lives spread across the world. Flevoland, a flat and dull, yet pretty area, is my country’s youngest province and the world’s largest artificial island. About a hundred years ago, the Dutch drained a bunch of water and created land in its place. My hometown Almere didn't exist before the 1970s and is still very much developing itself.

With my personal written and visual stories, I reflect on my identity and how it’s influenced by my culture and surroundings. At the same time, I investigate how the identity of a place can be affected by a person or people. How does this interaction work? I use my thoughts, observations, experiences, conversations with others, and literature to investigate how I relate to my surroundings and the other way around. I am my own case study, because I believe the more personal and intimate a story is, the more universal it becomes.

You'll often see my photographs and texts combined with each other. I tend to use both media separately as well, depending on the project.
