Hi, I'm Karin

Above all I am a proud mom of three grown-up boys (yes, I started early), happily married since forever with their amazing dad Eugene.

I studied Digital Photo Design at the Photoacademy in Amsterdam and am an experienced fashion photographer, specialized in business storytelling using imaging.

Having my own business was a dream come true in 1997. It was a concept store with a unique combination of advice & products. 6 years later, in 2003 I stepped into a new adventure with my husband Eugene, who is a psychologist. We started a psychology practice, Eugene being a certified psychologist and me being the practice manager. By then I already was experienced in writing business scripts, marketing texts and communicating with clients.

In 2012 I took the step to corporate business as a team leader for an international company. Being a creative writer on the side, publishing photos & stories via social media that happened to give a lot of traction, led me to one of Europe’s best performing 7-figure female online entrepreneurs, Simone Levie. She asked me to join her team as her content manager. Up to this day I am part of her team, handling her social media.

I find 'coloring outside the lines' very important. Pablo Picasso once said: “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”, and that was exactly what I learned at the Photoacademy in Amsterdam: the rules of photographic storytelling and visual content creation combined with the magnetic attractiveness of being original, surprising your audience over and over again. 

Being an entrepreneur with experience in small, corporate and online business, made me result focused and driven to actively contribute to business growth. Also, setting up and helping to run a psychology practice, working closely with referrers in mental healthcare, gave me a deep understanding of the human mind, feelings and emotions.
 

Located in the Netherlands, Working Worldwide

The Netherlands is my home country, my native language is Dutch and my second language is Storytelling! Okay... a shared second place with English. I was a foreign exchange student in upstate New York in 1992, just before the internet made our world a little smaller and bigger at the same time. Aren't we lucky to live in this era? So yes, gratefully located in the Netherlands, happily working worldwide!
