About me

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I lived in New York City for six years where I worked in communications advisory and business development. Upon my return in 2009 I co-founded Pergammon, an online and mobile platform for global citizens, currently in pre-launch stage.

I hold a masters degree in linguistics and literature from the University of Utrecht and achieved certificates in strategic marketing communications and project management. Besides raising our two beautiful daughters I love writing, photography, movies, cooking and traveling. 

The most interesting countries I have visited are Cuba and Jordan. Next on my wish list is going on an African safari.

    Marrika, this is amazing. You are doing just great work. I want to keep getting your articles always. They are really interesting. Being an Expat, these are the things that I really wonder about. Keep it up. Thanks.

    Hoi Marrika,
    Mooie weblog hou je bij, zeg! Ik heb met mijn vrouw toen we 12,5 jaar getrouwd waren vijf dagen en vier nachten in New York doorgebracht (brown stone hotel, ontbijten bij Starbucks met de New York Times); geweldig was het. We voelden ons er meteen thuis.

    Leuk dat je m’n weblog noemt in je rijtje ‘friends’. Hartelijke groet van Hans

      Leuk van je te horen, Hans! New York is inderdaad geweldig en ik heb nog wel eens heimwee moet ik eerlijk bekennen… Wat mijn blog betreft, ik moet hoognodig weer een nieuwe entry plaatsen maar het is er wegens drukte even niet van gekomen. Please come back to visit 🙂
