For the 30 years now I have been in the making, and so far people that I had the honor to call teachers, colleagues and friends all have contributed to the person I am today. I have gained valuable knowledge in various fields including sales, marketing, IT, and photography which you will learn quality when you look at this online resume below.
As a marketer with an IT and graphic design background, I understand the complicated worlds of websites and visual communication that are essential for a good marketer. I know how to maintain a website and how to optimize everything for the best SEO results, and I know how to design folders, banners and other graphical communication that are needed to communicate with a target audience.
At the age of eight, I got my first compact camera and started with photography which is a hobby I still practice to this day, but my biggest passion is that of motion picture and the art of storytelling. I try to visit the cinema ones every week and I’m currently in the process of writing my first screenplay. Besides all of this my current profession as a marketer also took me to this amazing industry, because currently, I’m fulfilling a fulltime position as a marketing and sales assistant at Galaxy Studios, which is one of the biggest motion picture and music studios in Europe.
Don’t be fooled that after 30 years I’m almost finished, because until the day I die I will continue to develop myself because you are never finished with learning.

Also I was able to work as a photographer for the academy of the Efteling amusement park during the presentation of a new entertainment concept. Over the years that I worked as a freelance photographer I notesed that the passion for photography was declining when I worked on projects, and so as of 2018 I quitted with freelance photography and now only practice this art form for myself as a hobby.

You can be a great photographer, but without a camera you aren’t going to take any pictures. I believe that the same is true when it comes to software packages. You can’t be a digital marketer without the basic knowledge of programs such as Google Analatics, and you also won’t be a great Production Manager if you can’t use a project and resource management program such as Farmerswife.
During my studies and career path I’ve gathered valuable knowledge with a wide variety of software programs that enable me to design, understand and communicate. The learning of these programs never stops because of the continuous development of these software packages and the requirement to adapt to new software programs.
