Since 1988 I have been active as a director, producer and writer of feature documentaries, feature films and TV drama. I have made a number of documentaries in Africa and Asia and with three friends I made the 1994 feature documentary film 'Rock 'n Roll Junkie' which was voted best Dutch postwar biopic in 2008 and nominated for best documentary at the Dutch Film Festival.

In 1996 I went to live in Africa where I wrote a number of books but also made some films. In 2004 I made Heavenly Mud, a film about traditional architecture and magic in the Niger valley (Mali). It was selected for a number of international film festivals and broadcast in many countries.

In 2009 I made the 90 minute film Secrets of the Maasai with Jan Dries Groenendijk. It features many unique rituals. In 2011, my film The Promise about the many unfulfilled promises the West has made to Africa premiered at the Dutch Film festival. It was broadcast on Dutch television (IKON) and has been sold to a number of countries.

From 2011 onwards I made a series of documentary portraits of traditional African healers (shamans) called Spirits of Africa. They vary from 10 to 20 minutes in length. They can be viewed online by clicking on the photo above ( top right).

From 2019-2023 I directed and produced Lembro Me, a series of short documentaries about life in the lower Alentejo region of Portugal before the revolution of 1974. They can be viewed by going to the Youtube channel Historias do Alentejo.
