Having grown up in the 'open air' museum of the city of Bruges, from an early age on the talent to detect lost tourists and put them on the right track again came natural to me. Today, I still love to introduce people to the many hidden gems and secrets that Belgium has to offer. Growing up in Bruges, having studied and/or lived in Ghent, Leuven and Antwerp and now living in Brussels for already eight years, I sure know my Belgium. As a free-lance arts, culture & lifestyle journalist, I have a nose for all things new, hip and trendy. With a background as art historian & curator, I also have a sensitivity for the past and how it still invades and informs our experiences today.
