What I do.

I am a television program, documentary, commercial film and content director specialising in food, travel and lifestyle. I have over 13 years of experience and have been lucky enough to travel all over the world creating award-winning television programs, commercials and content for companies like Discovery Channel, Cathay Pacific, TLC, Mastercard, Huawei and Qantas.

As a director, I like to be part of the entire process from conceptualising creative to pitching to the client and working with the editor and colourist during post-production. I love to try new things, on set and in post-production and I create work that's modern and in touch with today's audience. I also try to inject a bit of humour where I can (because there's just too much boring content out there).

I am the founder of ANYDOKO, a high-quality online travel channel, focused on exploring many passion points of travel. The channel receives millions of views every month. As the channel's Creative Director I am responsible for all the content we create.

I recently wrote and directed 'The Incredible Story of Kimchi' a feature-length documentary filmed in Korea and the US about the culture, history and science of kimchi. The documentary plays globally on Discovery Channel and Discovery+.

Keeping it diverse.

The creative industry and especially the film industry need more diversity. I believe it's everyone's responsibility to change this. This is why I advocate using talent of all genders, sizes and colours in the projects I work on and why the crew on my sets are diverse. I love working with clients who share this vision. I have gone more in-depth into my diversity goals on this page.

How I got here.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I traded in the canals for the beaches of Sydney to finish my Bachelor's degree and my Masters in Film Production. After ten years I made Hong Kong my second home base alongside Sydney to create more content in Asia.
