I'm a freelance journalist from the Netherlands, with a penchant for stories about niche communities, cultures, and small-town idealism (small people trying to fix big problems).
I started my journalistic career as an intern at Dave Eggers' oral history publication Voice of Witness in 2014 and have worked in audio, long form, interactive/multimedia storytelling, and data journalism.
Some of my favorite stories include nuns dressed in electric pink who pray for the outside world from solitary confinement, small towns in the Netherlands trying to solve the Northern-Irish Troubles, Brooklyn's cat rescuers, and the forgotten role the Dutch played in the Sinti & Roma holocaust. My work is featured in De Correspondent, De Groene Amsterdammer, Radio Doc, Pointer, Brooklyn Magazine, and more.
I'm a graduate of the Literary Reportage MFA program at New York University and was a board member of the Initiative Narrative Journalism Netherlands.
