For a long time I had a passion for Portugal and for living in the countryside. But I was manager in refugee-work in Holland, which I also did with commitment and involvement.
However, in 2010 I moved from Wageningen in the Netherlands to Terradomilho in the Algarve, to build up this sustainable life I desired, whilst my partner Tom still stayed part-time in Holland running his comedy-business.
Lots of things were developed since then and many of those things I had to learn from scratch. Changing 4 ha overgrown wild land into a fruit forest, keeping goats, building, making a water system for drinking and irrigation, etcetera.
Now we are coming into a new phase: sharing our experience and knowledge, and selling our products and skills. On this website and on social media you can read and see a lot of us and hopefully we will meet on social media or live at one of our guest-stays on the farm.
Juggling my work on the Portuguese farm and my work as a comedian in the Netherlands, where I try to be funny for money. I also give courses "theatretechniques for teachers and public speakers". At Terra do Milho, dog Oxford and i like to welcome the guests who are coming to stay in one of our accomodations. The reviews of the guests are never about me, always about Oxford, how sweet she is, so that's fine. Further on i do bits and bobs on the land and sometimes i write a song.
