I am a drama teacher/ actor/ director/ playwright and I performed in the theatre for over 600 performances (Joop van den Ende: My Fair Lady (Paul van Vliet, Vera Mann), Evita (Pia Douwes) and Singin’ in the Rain (Fred Butter)) as well as having experience in TV and film.
From 2004 to 2012 I was a drama teacher at the School of Performing Arts at the Hanze University, Groningen, Netherlands.
I wrote and/or directed quite a number of productions -and did some dramaturgy on the side.
