Masterclassing in Berlin!

Achtung, baby!

I love what I do and am so lucky to do it in places that I love. I just finished a Masterclass series in Berlin, and it was great! It’s the 6th time I’ve done this coaching course and I have to say that it keeps getting better and better. I am really impressed by […]


Would you say that to someone you love? No. So stop saying that to yourself.

Hi from Berlin! I’m here for a series of masterclasses on English songwriting, communication and pronunciation. I love what I do so much and I’m so fortunate that I get to do it in different places. Berlin is my second favorite city in the world (NY is number 1) and I just love working here […]

The Changemakers, de Telegraaf, and Radio 1! What a week!

I was honored to host the Celebrate the Changemakers event in Amsterdam, where sustainable entrepreneurs from around the world shared their stories on why we all need to think about impact when it comes to doing business. I introduced each speaker with a poem I wrote especially for […]

Welcome to Buffiland! (Or ‘Your Head vs Reality’)

What’s happening inside your head, sweetie? Do you even know what’s going on there? Well, let me tell you about Buffiland. I kind of live there. I love it there. Buffiland is a place full of magic and wonder. Negative concepts like calories, racism, and jealousy do not exist. We’ve got gin and tonic waterfalls, […]

Here we are, hard at work.

Jury duty….

I was honored to be on the jury for the Nederland Vertaalt competition, together with Erik de Jong (aka Spinvis) and Andrew Niemeijer! Hundreds of students sent us their versions of 2 different songs that had to be translated into English or Dutch. One of the songs was ‘Kom Terug’ by Spinvis, which just happens to be […]

Thank you.

I jumped. And you caught me. Thank you.

Happy Easter Monday! Maybe I should start calling it Eater instead of Easter. Because my body is truly about 68% chocolate at this point. But still. It’s lovely living in a country where you get an ENTIRE EXTRA DAY to eat chocolate. And if you live somewhere where Easter is celebrated only on Sunday, I can guarantee you […]

This is your head.

Your ears know a lot, but your mouth? Not so much.

Happy Monday! (Oh, and if you think Mondays suck, it probably means that your job sucks. Mondays are great.) It happened again last week while I was coaching in Utrecht.  “My English is really good – I never need subtitles when I watch a movie. But for some reason I just can’t seem to find the […]

I have never felt more special in my life.

What Going Viral Feels Like (3 million views later)

Wow. I mean wow. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, a 14-second film I made at the end of my coaching session last week went viral. We arenow at 3 million views and counting. What happened? I’ve been working with Tuffie Vos for a while, as she is a brilliant voiceover talent (among other things she’s […]

I have never felt more special in my life.

I went viral!

Yesterday, in my coaching session, I filmed one of my clients. She is awesome. Her name is Tuffie Vos and I love working with her so much; not in the least because it’s the ‘Tuffie and Buffi show’ when we get together. She’s the voice of the Dutch Railway, among others. She surprised me with […]
