Venturous master student in journalism graduating in March 2016. As a young professional in the making, I am looking for a challenging new future on the other side of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Work experience in several fields of media – the Dutch television talkshow DWDD, online news and magazine Vice Media, a national newspaper named Het Parool, documentary film at IDTV Docs and a radio show at Radio 6 Soul & Jazz – has given me a wide variety of training in the journalism field.

Currently writing my master thesis about computational journalism (using algorithms, data and software to supplement and, up to certain point, automate news production). Travelled to Los Angeles, California for a casestudy on the technology startup InkaBinka.
