CV & About me

Love to travel since my birth actually. Adopted from my birth in Indonesia flew over the Eurasian continent grew up as Dutch, think as Dutch and behave as Dutch. And i travelled ever since. Hard of hearing from my birth. In spite having hearing loss, i rely on high visual capacity. Which is an advantage in my profession as an Art Director for almost 10 years. To combine those two passions: advertising with traveling i call my self the Creative Globetrotter.

To travel the world in the most incredible places and visiting creative people and advertising agencies at the same time. From January 2015 I start my journey around the world. New experience, meet new people and share knowledge inspired talks about creativity and I realized: step out of the comfort zone to get inspired your creativity grow exponentially. The creative globetrotter and entrepreneur is an initiator, inspirator for everybody need an injection of creative energy in any part of the world. Currently teaching at MIADA in Chongqing China.
