I started my script editing career as an intern at Blue Horse Productions just before graduating with honours from Utrecht University in Film & TV. I’ve worked as a bilingual script developer ever since. I’m currently the resident script editor for Dutch production companies PV Fiction and PVPictures (16 years and counting), and in recent years have started to not just occasionally freelances via ScriptCoach, but to write, direct and produce my own projects as well. That really has helped me immensely as a script consultant, placing myself in the shoes of writers, producers and directors, giving me an allround perspective on screenwriting.
Over the years, I’ve worked on quite a few successful, award-winning drama series and features films, as well as numerous sitcoms. Check out the credits section for more info on those. I’m pretty darn proud that my writing-directing debut Fall-Out, starring Daniel Boys and David Paisley, was nominated Best UK Webseries at the Raindance Webfest 2014. I was also part of the London Screenwriters Festival’s Talent Campus 2.0.
