After completing a Masters degree in Art and Architectural History at the University of Groningen, I worked for several years in the cultural sector and the tourism industry. Then I acquired a Masters degree in Education from the University of Amsterdam and continued my career as a lecturer in Art and Cultural History at the Art Academy in Tilburg (Fontys) and Amsterdam (AHK) with a specialisation in African art. I also worked as a lecturer in cultural tourism, heritage and research at the Inholland University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam/Diemen.
I love to share my knowledge and experience with diverse audiences: students, scientists, tourists and everyone who is eager to learn. My lectures are among others about contemporary African art and cultural heritage.

As a guest lecturer at the Rwanda Tourism University College (RTUC) I worked on a project with Rwandan students to create a ‘backstage tour of Kigali’ in order to visit ‘the non touristic Kigali’.
