What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

Author of Beer in the Netherlands (second edition released January 2020) and Around Amsterdam in 80 Beers (2010 & 2015).

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

I’ve lived more than 30 years in the Netherlands and am a local expert on the burgeoning Dutch beer and bar scene, and well as on the wider Benelux region. Beyond my own books and features I contributed the Dutch input for Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont’s Pocket Beer Book. I also write on travel matters and am the author of the Bradt Guide to Luxembourg, now in its 4th edition.
