Dutch: Mother tongue English: Advanced French: I was very good in French when I was in high-school, unfortunately this is a long time ago already, but I still understand a lot when I read French or when people talk to me. Spanish: I worked in Mexico for 6 months, serving hamburgers in a restaurant. So I can tell you anything about hamburgers in Spanish. I would love to learn more! Thai: As I lived in Thailand I learned some Thai and I feel really passionate about it! I just started to read and write Thai as well!

Preferred location

Everywhere! The world is beautiful.


Graphic Design:
I have a degree in Graphic Design. I'm experienced in designing corporate identity, packaging, illustrations, websites, advertisement and conceptual thinking.
Teaching English or Dutch:
I have a TEFL-certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and experience teaching in an elementary school in Thailand. I really enjoy teaching English!
My dad is a professional painter and he taught me everything. We worked together for 3 years. I can paint walls, window frames, doors etc. Repairing too!
Artistic work:
As a graphic designer I of course am a creative person! I love to illustrate, to paint, to model, basically I just really love to create! I also make wooden jewellery and paint it by hand.
Tourist support:
I love to meet new people from all over the world and I'm not afraid of speaking in front of big groups. I love talking and explaining about culture and showing people around to teach them something.
I used to have a kayak at home back in the Netherlands. So I would be very excited to do kayaking tours as well!
I really really love kids, play with them, learn from them, teach them.
Pet sitting:
Cats please!
