New York School poets

I write about and translate the New York School poets. My thesis on Locus Solus won the Herman Servotte Prize.


I am a contributing editor and translator for Kunstlicht, an academic journal for visual art, visual culture and architecture.


I organise the Alfred Russell Wallace Lectures (art + science) and the monthly concert series My Boyfriend's Garage at Cafe De Ruimte in Amsterdam Noord.


American-Cajun-Mexican Soulfood cooking @ Gringo's Kitchen.

Ignite Amsterdam

At Mediamatic, I programmed and presented the monthly Ignite Amsterdam events from the start of the series in 2010 until sometime in 2014.

Kingdom of the Netherlands

The international project "Can one take the top of(f) a mountain?" concerned the dissolving of the Netherlands Antilles. When this happened (10-10-10), the highest point of the Netherlands shifted from Vaalserberg in Limburg to Mount Scenery on Saba. This touches on issues such as national identity, language, future government, and community. We made a documentary and organized lectures and debates. This project was made possible thanks to the generous support of Comité Koninkrijksrelaties. Visit


Saul Bellow, Martin Amis, Bernard Malamud, Paul Auster, Willem Elsschot. Barbara Guest, Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, Adrienne Rich.


Richard Peel, Jason, Jeffrey Brown, Kolbeinn Karlsson, Art Spiegelman.


I hosted an online radio that aimed to unite kindred spirits and provide a platform for producers, labels and musicians in/from Holland. Started on, and continued on Featuring monthly contributions by, among others, Narrominded, The Daisy Age, Katzwijm, More Thee Vicar? and Test Tone.

And yes, sometimes I get angry.
