Thank you for your interest in my story!
At the age of twelve, when visiting Egypt for the first time, I knew I wanted to become an Egyptologist. I also learnt to code and spent most of my time reading, gaming and building websites for fun.
In 2014 I graduated with distinction from a Research MA in Egyptology at Leiden University, with a thesis on two scenes in the Old Kingdom tomb chapel of Hetepherakhty. I furthermore studied Archaeology at BA level while minoring in Journalism and Digital Humanities.
During and after my studies I have worked as a web designer, database developer, communications officer, project manager, archaeologist and tour guide. At the moment I am a PhD student at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, studying ancient Egyptian landscape. I am also writing about the tomb chapel of Hetepherakhty that is now in the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden.
My passions include writing, museums and bringing to life the past using digital methods. I also love giving lectures and workshops, traveling to Egypt and photographing tombs.
