Hi there!

I’m the waterworld correspondent for the Dutch news website The Correspondent, based in Amsterdam. Before, I wrote about art, science and technology for Dutch national media like NRC Next, NRC Handelsblad, HP de Tijd, Intermediair, Moesson and the Uitkrant and occasionally British/American media such as the NewScientist and The Washington Post. Most of my (longer) articles in Dutch – written as freelancer – are posted on this website. Here a list of links to publications in English.

I also worked as photo editor for i.e. the Dutch edition of NewScientist and The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). When I’m not writing or scouting for imagery, I could be participating in think tanks or discussion panels, jurying (tech) art awards, hosting talk shows or roasting Dutch celebrities. And I hope to be impersonating more cyborg bees for online art projects in the future. ;)
