I'm a former culture critic and reporter for the leading newspaper in Holland, NRC Handelsblad, where I wrote about art, books and digital culture. I grew up between the progressive schools of the Seventies Dutch countryside and my Indo grandmother's toasty little flat in The Hague, full of Indonesian flowering plants.


I now live on the fourteenth floor of a tower block in east London, somewhere between the crashed UFO of West Ham stadium and the houseboats dotting the Hertford Union Canal. I'm probably out there some place, taking a walk.
