I'm an interior designer from the Netherlands living both in Amsterdam and Los Angeles.
Contemporary Design is my passion and my house is proof. I completely remodeled a "face less" house from the sixties -but in the perfect location!- into a designer home with all the amenities we want today.
Besides design and languages, I love to travel, hiking and being outdoors, outdoor activities, ride my motorcycle, animals, sustainable design and living, organic food, gardens and everything beautiful. In the past that included working in the music industry. Now I just enjoy listening to different kinds of music. I will gladly share my music collection with you, from classical to metal, world to techno, though you might have to update me on all of them!
I will make your stay comfortable and help you with any questions you have regarding your visit to Los Angeles. As a foreigner myself, I understand the cultural differences and the frustrations they sometimes cause. I can explain how things work here.
For many years I've purchased books on the region which I will gladly share with my guests.
Activities I love to do are: hiking, meeting friends for food or coffee/tea, reading, music, yoga, horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding and would love to sail again.
My favorite city is Paris (based on where I've been), though Amsterdam is not bad either and is my home.
