Welcome!

Welcome, my name is Okke Verstrenge.

I was born in 1956 in the province of Zeeland (The Netherlands) and went via Rotterdam to the province of Limburg, where I live nowadays. Originally I trained as a teacher: I taught for many years, then pursued other goals: I was a CEO, project manager and chairman of a union. For the last ten years I have worked as a business consultant & coach and as an interim manager. I’m also an experienced host , speaker, presenter and columnist.

I have been an actor for about 6 years, and loving it! I am self-taught in this area.

Dutch is my native language.
I’m fluent in Zeeuws (dialect of the province of Zeeland) and Limburgs (dialect of the province of Limburg). When needed, I can do an impression of a Rotterdam, Den Haag, Amsterdam or Frisian accent.
English: very good, German: good, French: average, but good enough to reproduce text in French.

Piano, organ, song and dance

I’m a classically trained organist and pianist.
I like to dance: ballroom, merengue and salsa. I always loved singing, but purely for my own pleasure. In 2018 I took the bull by the horns and participated in two workshops by Martine Reyners. There I learned to use my voice as a real instrument.
I am a baritone and love to sing all kinds of songs: church hymns, musicals, pop, chanson and opera.

Piano, from Sonatine Op. 168 nr 1 – Czerny

Sports

I am a sailor, a tennis player and I used to play volleyball and basketball.
