Full time tattoo-artist at ‘Tattoo Joris & Co and part-time father of 2 wonderfull kids who we’re born in Amsterdam. In 2013 I started writing and taking pics of small entrepreneurs in Amsterdam for this website. Lisbon would be a great city for the next site and I dream about opening a nightclub called: ‘the devil’s klub’. Keep you posted on that one!

Originally from San Francisco, I loved Amsterdam from the moment I visited as a 5-year-old. Though an awful lot has changed in the 30-plus years I’ve lived here, it’s still full of surprises: architectural juxtapositions and details waiting hundreds of years to be noticed. I’m a costumer & make decors, do textile repairs as well as working in a vintage shop. It’s also been my pleasure to do corrections here and there on Joris’ texts.

39 years, mother of two , girlfriend of one, I completed my degree in publishing but found my joy in woodworking and making furniture. I’ve lived in every corner of Amsterdam in the last 20 years. I can see it change through the years. But some places have the power and people to survive time and hipness and have their very own identity.

I have a degree in philosophy. A law degree. And 3 little boys. I’m Californian but I desperately want to be Dutch and live in Amsterdam. For now, I’m studying Nederlands, visiting twice a year to explore your amazing city, and dreaming of the day. I also consider myself an expert on beer and am a mediocre bass guitar player.

Like our queen, I was born in Buenos Aires, my last name is Basque and live and work in The Netherlands. Unlike her, my king is handsome and my parents left that city for the same reason hers stayed.

Enjoying writing for this site, made by friends for friends to be.

As a visual artist I try to make drawings I would like to own and others to be moved by.
My illustrated book The Journey of Mr. Naut just came out and like him we are on a Journey; discovering and tasting people and places.
