    Originally from New York, I've been an Amsterdam resident for 20+ years. I teach English at the local universities, and I take an active part in the city's cultural scene as an artist, musician and writer. I know the city's off-the-beaten paths and the city's untold tales. As a visual artist and filmmaker, I've painted, photographed and filmed this city - the city I love - numerous times. I know how to make it look great in any weather and in all seasons! As a filmmaker, I am interested in stories - your stories! Act in your own short movie, set in Amsterdam!

  • What you will see and do

    Amsterdam has inspired me in many ways and despite its small comprehensive size, it keeps on surprising me with its layers of history and abundant detail.
    If you like to probe beyond the surface, past what a typical first-time visitor sees, then this experience is for you. I'll take you on a walk through the quieter, less-explored but still central neighborhoods of Amsterdam. Just steps from the main arteries trodden by thousands of passersby, one can find a hidden tranquil square or a quiet alley offering some repose, and a moment for reflection and creativity.

    You'll turn your experience into an artwork you create yourself—a combination of your thoughts, experiences, and perhaps, your dreams. And, as a bonus, you will receive a sketch made by me!
