I’ll be frank: when I was studying Media Technology & Entertainment at University of Applied Sciences Utrecht I didn’t think of becoming an Editor. Instead I freelanced as a web designer and web builder while holding a job as a Marketing & Communications Manager. But I soon realized that this wasn’t fulfilling me and I started looking for my true passion.

Then one day I saw one of Adidas’ iconic commercials on the telly, Ali vs. Ali. I was completely blown away by it. And I knew straight away that I wanted, no I needed, to create beautiful commercials. So I applied for a job opening at 180 Amsterdam, back then one of the few agencies in The Netherlands that had a proper in-house AV department. And I got hired! I started out as a Tape Operator/Assistant Editor and I put all of my energy and love into my job and pretty soon I was promoted to Junior Editor.

After couple of years I left 180 and continued to freelance for different international agencies, production companies and brands. I worked on commercials, short documentaries, music videos, fashion films but also helped setup the Editing department at 24Kitchen, The Netherlands’ first ever TV channel dedicated to food. There I edited over 75 hours of food programs, that’s a whole lot of stirring-in-pots POV shots…

After a while I wanted to step up my game and together with my husband I decided to move to London which became my second home town. It was a very exciting time with lots of great opportunities crossing my path. I worked for several award-winning production companies like Passion Pictures, found a great agent, met amazing fellow editors, and I even joined a film editing collective.

Nowadays I’m based in Amsterdam and I work across the world as a freelance film editor. I also run a small retail label called Pakkembeet together with one of my sisters, and I give guest lectures on editing & diversity at different universities throughout The Netherlands.
