About me

I am a Dutch young woman, working in Madrid since 2004, in all kind of projects. The aspect that unifies all these different jobs is being a bridge between Spain and the world.

I studied Art Policy and Spanish Language and Culture at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands), finishing both masters with a cum laude degree.

Aguakate is the Spanish word for avocado, and it also consists of the words agua (water) and Kate (Spanish abbreviation of my very difficult Dutch name Kateleine).

I speak six languages:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • Dutch
  • French
  • Italian
  • German
