I was born on a Wednesday in 1991. Two years later, my sister stole my thunder by arriving the day before my birthday and we’ve been a close-knit duo ever since. Some twenty-two years after that, I graduated from theatre studies at Utrecht University, having previously studied costume design at Utrecht School of Arts. I’ve always worked alongside my studies, amongst other things as a vegan chef. Since then, I’ve integrated the durational aspects of embroidery into slow recipes and fermentation, be it sourdough, nut-based cheesemaking with mould (the good kind), or various fermented drinks.
My sister and I worked together as vegan caterers named Zus&Zo from 2009-2021. I still work as one of her support people and as co-director of her daily support network, as well as working part-time at Mediamatic.CV
