Having your own webpage is back in style again. Isn’t it nice to curate your own content, instead of having some algorithm or social media platform do that for you?

Well, here is my digital home. Welcome.

What’s the point?

Maybe you want to find out more about me. Maybe you want to head-hunt me. Maybe you’re a stalker. Well, you won’t find my home address here.


A little bit about me: I care a lot about the environment — always have. I always found health and law especially interesting. After a long journey through activism, I became a journalist and editor (and videographer and radio producer, etc.). Photography is among my hobbies. (Yes, I took all the photos on this site.) And I love music, a really wide variety. Oh, and … food! Cooking and eating it.

Recent work

As of December 2022, I’m very pleased to have joined POLITICO in Brussels as deputy EU editor.

For my first POLITICO byline, I looked at how Belgium has granted teens the right to vote in European elections.

Before I started at POLITICO, I was a senior editor and journalist at DW.

Having spent time in Venezuela in the past, I’ve followed what’s been happening there over the years. Joe Biden’s unfortunate policy to push back Venezuelan asylum-seekers at the U.S. border in late 2022 provided an opportunity to report on the topic.

When I moved with my family to Flanders in Belgium, I became enchanted by the melodic chiming of carillon bells ringing through the air in our city of Mechelen. What, what’s a carillon? You can find out more by listening to the radio report:

As the party swept recent parliamentary elections in a country once known for its exceptional tolerance, I profiled the right-wing Sweden Democrats.

Past work

I had various roles at DW, including team leader and radio producer.

While at DW, I able to publish my views on number of topics. You are welcome to read more about why I got riled up about the findings around the COVID vaccine impacting menstruation, or my take on ultra-rich dudes who blast themselves into space.

Many of my stories were also published in German, among other languages:
Wie die EU Zwangsarbeit bekämpfen will
Globalisierung: Ist der Zenit überschritten?
Deutschlands rückwärtsgewandtes Mutterbild

For a time, I was producing the radio show/podcast Living Planet. You can listen to this episode, for example, where our production team collaborated with another audio project to look at whether or not civilization would need to end in order to save the Earth.

I led the environment team at DW for about five years. Here is a small selection of some of the material I produced during that time.

Video interview: California Governor Jerry Brown at COP23 in Bonn

Online version: California’s Jerry Brown on how to beat Trump on climate change

Opinion piece: Hambach Forest — just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right

I’ve also worked as a freelancer. This short documentary video Tourism in Cancún: Success or Disaster? was a part of the Km 0 compilation.
