About Me

Like most North Americans I emerge from multiple cultures. I was born, raised, and live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but my parents came from the Netherlands as children (dad from Friesland, mom from Groeningen). So I think of myself as a Canadian who is also shaped by my Dutch heritage. I created this project for the Public Culture class for my Master’s in Intercultural and International Communication at Royal Roads University. I am hoping that it will not end here, but perhaps grow with the help of other Dutch people like me.

When I am not being a student, I am a technical writer who has been writing professionally for over 15 years. I work with all sorts of clients creating and managing multiple training and procedural projects .I also teach technical writing in the Bachelor of Communication Studies program at Grant MacEwan University.

I am not just interested in my own heritage, but in all cultures and countries. In my spare time, I find as many ways as possible to travel the world.
