I am a Dutch singer and a digital strategist, currently working as a community manager at Circle Economy; utilizing the social-web to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy; a regenerative and restorative economic model, inspired and in balance with Nature.

I am fascinated by the democratizing power of social media technologies and the visualization revolution; democratizing marketing; acces to information and collaboration. With my social & political sciences background, I truly enjoy using Web 2.0 for influencing decision-making for the better.

I recently finished my masters in Environment and Resource Management in Amsterdam; specializing in ecosystem services, biodiversity and sustainable land management.

Ï've been singing from a very young age. Currently I am writing my own songs for the first time in my life. I have a Baritone soulful voice. My influences are very diverse (Amy winehouse, Anouk, Bob Marley, Leonard Blair, Robbie Williams, Amos Lee, Selah Sue, Mumford & Sons). Lately I have been inspired by Rock n' Roll music.

Also, I love travelling, photography, skying, food and I have a fascination for Africa.

I feel very passionate about making music as well as trying to contribute to positive change in our World.
