Organiser, producer, storyteller, craftsman, builder, fighter.
I am multi-disciplined in very different trades. From small crafts demonstration to procucing full-blown (pre) historical festivals. From building and artefact reconstructions to putting up big shows. I do it all. Started at the age of 15 doing Iron Age living history. After this, I worked at Archeon for 16 years doing all sorts of crafts demonstrations. My last eight years in Archeon I work as coordinator reconstructions, theatre and staff trainings. I now have experience working in different historical periods and crafts. Presently, my reach is Mesolithic up until the 16th century and everything in between. My focus (at the moment) is on event production, documentry making,  gladiator combat, historical theatre, (medieval) woodworking, and wood oven builds.
