Tell us, what do you do in life?
I’m a lifestyle journalist and copy editor for a newspaper. Besides that, I’m always thinking about food, feeding and getting fed and making plans that never turn into reality.
In an ideal world, what would you be doing?
Make my fantastic plans will come to life. Maybe I’ll own a family restaurant?
What inspires you?
City life. New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Rotterdam. Places packed with neon lights, cool shops, nice bars and friendly atmospheres.
What do you like best about your place?
Some of the artworks I’ve collected: my original Larry Clark Kids-photograph, Piet Parra drawing, the dreamy photographs of poodles and the Freed From Desire work I have from Ghent-based artist Tim Bruggeman. My bedroom feels like a treehouse and there’s a lot of light.
What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
Pop songs from the Eighties and italo disco.
What’s the first record you bought?
Very by The Pet Shop Boys with ‘Go West’ on it, that was my first CD. I’ve been into kitschy pop music ever since.
Your first ever music-related memory?
Marching bands! I still get really excited when I hear one. Those drums!
What’s your favourite pastime?
Reading. Cooking. Drinking wine with friends. Dancing our feet off. Lying on the coach overthinking things. Watching cycling and reality TV. Nothing special.
What does a utopian Sunday look like for you?
Like eggs and bacon.
What makes you dance?
If it’s catchy or has beats then I perform my iconic square dance.
Which future Subbacultcha show are you looking forward to?
Deep in House in Kompass. So happy Hunee is coming to Ghent. Such good vibes.
