Belgian writer born in 1980.
In a few words:
Where : here, there and everywhere – with roots in Belgium (the ID), a love for the Mediterranean (the cradle), encounters in East Africa and India (for work and for play), with a lost shoe in South-East Asia, another in the Mauritanian desert (whilst wondering happily), a great enthusiasm for the rest of the world (running projects), a fascination for the Middle-East (a fertile ground) and a (temporary) home in Jerusalem.
When : born in 1980, successfully stepped into the third millennium but probably lived a few other lives before this one.
What : writes and has published numerous texts (poems, stories, articles) ; leads creative writing workshops ; has translated texts (into French); has worked in the fields of education (in both formal and informal contexts) and of culture (through different cultures); convinced that bounding people is a key in life + that this must be done beautifully and harmoniously; plays happily with words and images – translating life’s encounters into poetic shapes and language as well as using visual, audio and theatre.
How : in French, English, Italian, Spanish, with a little something in Arabic, Swahili or Dutch; using language, mind & body, computer’s programs, anthropological approaches, improvisation, intuition and common sense.
