Hi! I'm a very experienced journalist, Scandinavia correspondent and language teacher. More commonly known as The Nordic Reporter I've been shooting photos ever since my uncle and aunt inspired me to buy my first SLR when I was 16 years young.
Born in the Netherlands I moved to Sweden in 2006, for love. I wrote a travel guide book as thick as a brick about my new home country, became a correspondent / fixer for Belgian and Dutch media and I guide 6 to 19 year old kids and teenagers through the Swedish elementary and secondary schools.
A love later I've expanded my regular whereabouts across the Baltic Sea into Poland, and I currently divide my time living and working mostly in the Stockholm/Uppsala area and sometimes in Poland. An envious friend calls me "The Traveller" and despite COVID19 putting a hold on much of my journeys planned in 2020, I'm confident that new discoveries can be made close by home or further away.
If you would like me to work for or travel with you, or wish to grill me for your own report on loads of Scandinavian or Polish topics including the Swedish education system, write me a nice message. I speak Dutch, English and Swedish, understand some other languages pretty well and have a useful network in Poland. Be advised I'm a native Dutchman, hard Gs and all, but you may as well recognize me by my slight Antwerp accent on Belgian VRT Radio 1.
