I am a Dutch scriptwriter-coach and actress bassed in Amsterdam. In 2016 I got my master in scriptwriting at the Binger Writerslab. There I wrote my first feature filmscript; Find that dumb little bitch and throw her into a river which premiered at the Warsaw Int. Filmfestival 2017 where we recieved a special mention by the jury.

I write feature film scripts aswell as TV-series, short films and web-series. 

In 2005 I got my Bachelor in Theatre and played in farious Theatre and Dance plays. 

The past 5 years I've performed in different TV series and commercials and many short films.


Scriptwriter & Scriptcoach

Because of my background as an actress, I have a different approach to a story then most scriptwriters. For me the characters are the centre of the story, you have to love, hate or pitty them, only then you will experience the depth of the story. I write my own work, but also in commission of a director or producer.  


Besides writing scripts myself I also coach directors and writers. From brainstorming about the first idea, to taking the last hurdles in the 4th draft of a script, I can bring a fresh and practical insight to the story. I work on long and short term project. So it's up to the writer if he wants a one time analysis ore a frequent contact spread over a longer period of time.
