Born in 1982 on December the 26th in the Dutch region of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen out of a very Dutch father and a very central European mother with mostly Hungarian and German roots.
The place I grew up is a meeting point of cultures, Dutch and Flemish and I do believe growing up in between different cultures has always been a benefit for me.
I graduated with an HAVO and subsequently with a VWO diploma and went on to study journalism for a year.
Feeling not quite in the right place I took some time to sort things out and lived in Budapest for a while where I obtained a high level diploma in German at the Goethe Institut. Back in Holland I successfully applied for the Roosevelt Academy in Middelburg but a passion for photography took over so I began studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent where I am currently in the master program.
