I left the Netherlands where I was born and raised in my late twenties ready to explore the world. Since then I have lived and worked in 8 countries and travelled almost to 40 before settling with my family in Limassol, Cyprus.

The variety and peculiarities of cultures, backgrounds, environments and the similarity of human emotions in all of those countries is what I share through my images. 

I believe my experiences living and working together with such a variety of people over the years combined with my passion for visual storytelling has lent me a different perspective and sensitivity. I photograph life not only as I see it but more as I feel it.
