About me

Hi, my name is Lieuwe.

First and foremost I am a craftsman. With my company, Livius Crafts, I give courses in traditional crafts such as spoon carving and leatherworking. I post pictures of the things I make and how I make them to Instagram pretty often. Trained as a historian, I also like to do nerdy things to historical sources. I kept a blog about the significance of analog and digital storage media for historians, titled Historage. For the past eight years I have worked as a teacher in secondary schools. I have tought rhetorics, philosophy and leadership classes to 12-18 year olds at the Praedinius Gymnasium, Dutch at the Kamerlingh Onnes College and History at the H.N. Werkman College. I also like to take pictures, usually of nature or architecture. You can check those out on my Flickr photostream. If you’d like to speak to me about anything I do, feel free to shoot me a message. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn.

This site is currently still under construction. But feel free to look around!

C&M with Latin and philosophy. I was a member of the student board and the school council (medezeggenschapsraad), and very active in a school band as a guitarist and composer.

Hobbies: I love playing guitar and piano. I dabble a bit in recording my own compositions and editing digital audio with Ableton Live. I like to ride my Koga bike around the countryside (but not in tight spandex, just in my regular clothes). I love hiking and general outdoorsy stuff. I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to wood and trees.
