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. Until recently I 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 now work at the Groninger Archieven. 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.
