About Me


I was born in The Netherlands but currently live near Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. I am a Christian and love to learn and explore new things in creation and human culture; things that are foreign to me. I am adventurous and want to make the most of my youth; to create memories and experiences, and to have stories and adventures to tell of when I'm older.


I have a passion for film making. For me film is a way to create and tell stories; to organize thoughts. I love music, especially independant music, and have also found new interest in electronic music. I really enjoy reading and studying philosophy and psychology, and am a 3rd year University student. I also play and watch alot of soccer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Me and one of my good friends camped 2100m up at the top of a mountain in South-West British Columbia and spent the weekend hiking, and sleeping in the open air; under the stars. This experience really opened my mind to the idea of going on an adventures and exploring; I think it is what inspired me to book my upcoming trip to Europe.

I was in Vancouver when it hosted the Olympics. Seeing all of the different people represent and share their countries and their cultures was so surreal. Vancouver is like home to me; such a gorgeous city, and I think most of my best memories take place there; far too many amazing ones to really single one out.

Last summer I also travelled back to my place of birth; to The Netherlands. It was incredible to finally be able to see and experience a place you had been told of your entire life. Amsterdam is beautiful!
