Our Team

We started to provide local news in English through www.EindhovenNews in English in 2009 with a group of international people from Eindhoven who were lacking this information.
Since then we have been growing and expanding slowly but surely with the help of many volunteers who full-heartedly support(ed) our good cause.


About 25 dedicated and enthusiastic internationals living in or close to Eindhoven are keeping Eindhoven News operational throughout the year. They are working for Stichting International Platform Eindhoven to provide non-Dutch people with news, background, views and events via our website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and public screens at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven.

Everybody does their talented bit to keep Eindhoven News in the air. Meet our great team:



I am a visual artist from Ecuador and I fell in love with the Netherlands in my first year at the Graphic Design College, (especially with Van Gogh’s paintings). I moved to Spain to pursue my degree on Artistic and Documentary Photography and in the meantime also networking in Eindhoven through my paintings. After my graduation, I moved to the Netherlands to start my artistic career and to keep collaborating on different projects.

For Eindhoven News, I am creating art through my photography.



My name is Aysenur, I was born in Izmir, Turkey. I graduated in Journalism and Press at the Anadolu University. After that I focused on social media and digital marketing in different roles. I have a daughter. We all moved to Eindhoven because of my husband’s job in 2017. So far, I am writing blogs and contribute as a volunteer in activities in & around Eindhoven.
For Eindhoven News I am the Social Media Manager.



I am a mom, mentor and a good human being. A dentist by education, writer by passion and innovator by compulsion. I burn out when challenges run out. I thrive in an honest, diverse company and feel energised by compassionate fresh minds. I am full of energy, appreciate motion and movement… But nowadays my son is teaching me to stop and smell the roses (read tulips). I am the editor-in-chief of Eindhoven News.


I am Chaitali. Born and brought up in India. I have been living in the Netherlands for the past 16 years almost. A finance professional, but my first love is writing and some of my best moments are created when I am either reading or writing. I do have a degree in journalism and mass communication and am closely associated with many writing platforms both in the Netherlands and in India. Happy to be a part of Eindhoven news!

Recently I started my own company On Point Communication and Consultancy Services. Apart from offering Business English and Translation services to various organisations, I also offer Dutch language classes to beginners.



I am a cross-cultural psychologist who specializes in parenting and child development in multicultural contexts. I received my PhD in the Netherlands in 2011 and built my multicultural family here in Eindhoven. Currently, I am setting up Roots & Wings Parent Academy that offers workshops and trainings for parents and families (rootsandwingsparent).

For Eindhoven News, I will be writing a column where the topics of child development and parenting as an expat will be covered. On a personal note, I have a 4yo son and I love travelling, cooking, singing, and hiking.





I was born, raised and studied in Turkey. Then I fell in love with a handsome Dutchman and followed him all the way to Eindhoven. I have been living in the Netherlands since January 2009. I work as a business controller in a multinational company, so my job is within finance.
Writing has always been my passion. I do manage two blogs, where I share my own writings and translations.
I am happy to be part Eindhoven News, as I like this city very much.



I moved back to the Netherlands in 2008 after having lived abroad for 20 years. I did 5 intercontinental moves for myself and my family. I lived in Middle-East, Far-East and Europe.

My first port of call on returning to the Netherlands was the international community in Eindhoven. With a couple of enthusiasts, we started Eindhoven News, as throughout my expat life I experienced the importance of knowing what is happening in your vicinity.
To feel at home and to play an active role in your new habitat either for work, family, studies or leisure, being informed is key.

I have done business and management studies and I worked in tourism, events and as an entrepreneur. International Communication is my expertise.

I stepped down as Director in 2021….I led this wonderful platform for 11 years with tremendous pleasure and I am very grateful to all the people who have given their time and energy!!


Born in the international year of the child and still as much young at heart as ever. An Electrical & Electronics Engineer by education and process consultant by profession, I pride myself on having just the right spark for life. I am an avid reader with a love for languages and animals. Just as I cannot pass by a copy of Pride and Prejudice without reading it yet another time, neither can I refrain from making a polite conversation with every cat that I happen to meet.

My other interests include travelling, creative writing and making chocolates.  This penchant for writing started from my school days and I still continue to publish snippets for newsletters, magazines and library forums. Have won several accolades along the way and my dream is to see a rack full of books of my own at the library.  My maiden book “Merry-go-reads” is about all those priceless moments that are guaranteed to make you feel good instantly. I look forward to sharing some of these passions with everyone through Eindhoven News.






After having lived in Geneva, Switzerland, for 18 years, I returned to my hometown Eindhoven. I was born and grew up in the vicinity, as a real ‘Philips child’. Having been an expat quite a while myself, and knowing Eindhoven and surroundings well, I hope to bring value to the expat community by writing about interesting events and provide some background to the happenings. So far I am very excited regarding my move back.

I’m a Supply Chain professional which keeps me busy during the day. Apart from that I have a big passion for PSV, exciting music, nice bars and cool & crazy events and festivals.





I came from the remote Himalayan region of Pakistan, called Baltistan. I did my basic education in Pakistan and higher education in Germany. I then moved to the Netherlands in 2012. Before coming to Germany, I had no idea where ‘Nederland’ was. But, you never know, I found a Phd. Position at the University of Twente and that was the first time I visited Netherlands and discovered the beautiful Dutch weather. Before coming to the Netherlands, I could not imagine eating bread and cheese in lunch but now it’s the food of my living. Currently, I am working as a researcher in Venlo and I am living in Eindhoven. I am a social person with a profound interest in different cultures and perspectives of people. With the platform of Eindhoven News, I am hoping to broaden my social circle and to get more inside of this beautiful city and people living here.
