What is your background?
When I was 19 years old, I moved to Brussels to study history with a minor in political science because I thought I needed to understand the world before I could tell anything about it. Now I found more inner peace to be selfish and follow my passion, photography.
What do you do for Subba?
I help to prepare a new project.
What's your favourite way to spend your leisure time?
I enjoy theatre a lot but nothing beats the Marollen on a Sunday. After nosing a bit myself, I end my visits with an onion soup at Le Chineur, watching people stroll by, wondering who they are and what they picked from the piles.
Name the best record you listened to in the last ten years.
An American Prayer by Jim Morrison is such a poetic and adventurous classic… Its elusive playfulness really attracts me. In a strange way, it makes me both happy and sad.
Where were you in life ten years ago?
I made my first big solo trip to Australia, an intriguing experience with a lot of odd characters. Very different from what I had prepared for. I would love to do a project about it.
What advice would you give your ten-year-old self?
Try to value your hobbies a bit more because it is an immense privilege to be able to feed yourself at such a young age. I really didn’t have a clue at the time, it seemed obvious in my world.
"Try to value your hobbies a bit more"
How did you first find out about Subbacultcha?
I can't quite remember because it has been some time but I think through friends.
What was the best event organised by Subba in the last ten years?
I went to the Sound of the Belgian Underground at Ancienne Belgique last February where a high school friend (@dushime) performed. Seeing her follow her passion through hard work is inspiring. Interesting to see how lives evolve.
What is the most valuable thing you have learnt in the last ten years?
As long as you stay curious, life will take interesting turns.
Have you noticed any shifts in Subba over the years?
I think it has become more inclusive and at the same time more local.
