Thank you for your interest in my story.
As a kid, I was always either reading or daydreaming. At the age of twelve, after visiting Egypt for the first time, I knew I wanted to become an Egyptologist. I also learnt to code and was often building websites and filling them with content.
Fast forward to 2014, when I graduated with distinction from a Research MA in Egyptology at Leiden University. I have 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, editor, database developer, communications officer, archaeologist and tour guide. At the moment I am writing a book about the tomb chapel of Hetepherakhty, together with my great mentor René van Walsem.
My passions include writing, museums and bringing to life the past using digital methods. I also love teaching, giving lectures and providing interactive workshops.
I am currently based in the Netherlands, but am perfectly willing to travel to exotic locations.
