On this page you can read about my work experience and my story.

It has not always been an easy road but I feel immensely grateful and privileged to have been able to study, work and be inspired by so many amazing mentors, teachers, artists and colleagues. It is my greatest passion now to be able to meet people myself and to investigate with them what their story is, and also to share with them what I have learned and am still learning. Together we continue to learn and research with and from each other. I also hope to meet you in one or more of the three departments of my practice.
