_about me

_I’m a filmmaker. That is what I do. That is what I love. As a freelance filmmaker I have produced corporate videos, commercials and digital content for various brands and companies. In narrative fiction I have directed three feature films and close to a score of short films. I am currently emplyed as a director at content marketing agency The Post in Zwolle.

_I’m an all-round content creator. I can produce, I can shoot, I can write, I can edit and I can do the sound design. I’ll even take a good stab at designing the poster. My main focus and skills are in directing, with story structure and working with teams as my specialties.

_ I’m self-taught. I started out as runner when I was a teenager and went on to work in a various department including lighting, grip, camera, production, special effect and Assistant Directing. I currently teach film production and visual storytelling to BA students.

_I am 49 years old, father to two daughters and husband to one wife. I was born in Denmark and raised in Portugal and I have made Amsterdam my home for almost three decades. I am working hard at being able to pass for a Dutchman.

_My Dutch is pretty good, but to be fair my English is better. I also speak a smattering of French, German, Portuguese and Danish.
