Dutch multimedia journalist based in Rome, Italy, since 2001. Graduated from the School of Journalism in Zwolle (The Netherlands) in 1995, I've worked for 5 years for the national public radio in The Netherlands before I moved to Rome. Ever since I'm in Rome I made radio reports (from 3 minute features to 90 minute documentaries), always for Dutch public radio. I always recorded and edited my own stuff. in 2003 I started working for television as well and in 2007 I bought a camera to do my own filming as well. And with the filming came the editing. So now I do all my stuff on my own.
A report I made on the Italian island of Lampedusa on immigration and the possibility the island should host a so called hotspots, a centre where immigrants are screened and either sent back to their homecountry or granted political asylum in Italy. I made the report for Inside Europe, the English spoken programme on Deutsche Welle. The narration is in English but the clips are in the original language (Italian).
A story I did for the English department of Deutsche Welle, it's on a Dutch football player playing in the lower divisions of Italian professional football. He talks about intimidation, match fixing and the joy of a 1-0 victory. The narration is in English, but the clips are in the original language (Dutch) as these are dubbed in Germany.
This is not something I wrote, this is a link to my Flickr page where you can see my portfolio. This instead of uploading single photographs.
