The people and the scenery in the States are a huge source of inspiration for me. Most of the Americans I met and portrayed over the past years were very open. Within minutes after having met, they shared their inner thoughts, problems, happiness and daily routine. It’s like they put in an effort to make you feel comfortable. My life in the States and here in Amsterdam are in balance. I try to visit the States and my relatives over there at least two or three times a year, so it feels like the best of both worlds. When it comes to living, I’d probably say the Netherlands, but in terms of work I definitely prefer the States. People seem so much more open; I hardly met anyone that did not want to be portrayed. It’s almost like they love the attention they are getting.
