In August 1991 I took an Argentinean Tango proof lesson with Lalo and Mirta Diaz and caught the ‘Tango bug’. In the summer of 1993 I travelled with, my then boyfriend and now husband - who I met on August 15 1991, Carel Kraayenhof to Argentina and there I found what I have been looking for: “home”.  In 1996 Carel asked me to be, “temporarily”, Sexteto Canyengue’s manager. As an entrepreneur’s daughter I was very interested in this “temporary” challenge. Since then I worked as manager, booker and producer from several theatre productions – Street Tango in 2006, Tango Heroes in 2007, Compassion in 2009, ¡Fuerza! in 2012 as well as the CD’s Compassion, ¡Fuerza! and PURO
