I do live storytelling across the Netherlands and online. I usually focus on untold history, though I sometimes do autobiographical stories or modern folk tales. My storytelling projects include: writing a storytelling tour of the ANDB for the International Institute for Social History as part of the Jewish History Museum’s Diamantbuurt exhibit; a standing performance in Samizdat at Mezrab House of Stories; and Amsterdam tours where I tell stories of women and LGBTQ people across its history.

Gather round for some stories:
