I am Michael, nice to meet you!


My journey started in Leeuwarden, in 2013. I decided to follow the education Event Management at the Friesland College in the North of the Netherlands. An education that fits into my youth dream. I got already some experience. For instance, how to make financial reports, how to write marketing- and communication plans, how to request permission from the government, how to manage artists and how I need to make scripts or planning for events, festivals and artists.


I applied that knowledge and skills during my (inter)national internships and volunteer work during the education. This results in my graduation in 2017. But this wasn’t the end for me. I choose to follow another education on a higher level in the Dutch study system. I decided to follow the education Media & Entertainment Management at the Stenden University of Applied Sciences, nowadays NHL Stenden University of Applied sciences in Leeuwarden (North of the Netherlands). An education to specialize myself into a media manager.

During the education I would like to learn more about media usage, research on the markets, graphic design and photography. Those are the subjects that I want to do for the (nearly) future. I will follow other online courses from the University of Virginia, HEC Paris and from the University of New South Wales, next to my current education.


On a voluntary basis, I am actively involved in various organisations, including Uit de oude Koektrommel, Proud on Stage and CGN United.
