She has been a sportswriter in the Alps, a music critic in England, a nightlife reporter in Berlin, a adventure journalist in the South Caucasus, a beer blogger in Belgium, and above all, an author on Amsterdam.

Then came SPIN magazine and PartyEarth, writing about the city's sultry nightlife and endless music scene.
