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 8 years, and loving it! I am self-taught in this area.

Languages and dialects

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. EnglishFrançaisDeutsch

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.
