Interviewing Dutch stars

In February and March 2020, just before Corona lockdowns kicked in, I travelled to Barcelona, Liverpool and Turin to interview Frenkie de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum and Matthijs de Ligt for UEFA. Find out how it went.

Philips Design video scripts

Wrote a couple of video scripts for Eva Deckers from Philips Design on some new explorations she is involved with over there. Interesting, compact little stories. The animations look really good as well. Here’s one on adapting your lifestyle after undergoing bariatric care, and another one on an app to help you take better care of yourself at home.

Three-day journey in Austria

Despite all the COVID-19 restrictions, we (Amaseu) managed to safely organise and carry out a three-day journey in the Austrian Alps in late October. All our crew, plus the participants, tested negative beforehand, and we then created a bubble in Tirol so we could do our thing without danger of infection. Spending the majority of the second day hiking around in the snow, at times on extremely narrow and slippery trails, was wonderful.

Scottish word of the moment

How. Not a particularly Scottish word you may think, which is true, although it is used in Scotland in a way that I haven’t come across anywhere else: instead of why. So when someone says I’m going home now, it’s quite common for someone else to reply How? The correct answer is not By bike or On foot, but rather Because I’m knackered. Similarly, the question How no? actually means 'why not?' Why we don’t just say Why not? is beyond me, but I guess it’s yet another reason why we are such a wonderful bunch of people. 

Among other things

I do a lot more than just writing. For example, I interview many of the world's top footballers (and a few duffers as well, when I think about it) in the Netherlands and beyond.

Word Crimes

Why is decent writing important? 'Word Crimes' reveals all...!
