About me


I was born in 1986 and immediately proceeded to become a giant nerd. Since graduating in 2010 with a degree in German at the University of Leiden and the Free University of Berlin, I’ve been working in market research, copywriting, translation, editing and communication (in Dutch, English and German). I like green tea.
