HER STORY

WHAT SHE DOES

HER SERVICES

Born and raised in Ghent (Belgium). Started dancing at the age of 4. Made her very first choreography at the age of 12 wich was a Ballet (pointe) piece on 'Jaydee - Plastic Dreams': "I guess that setted the tone. I loved experimenting, exploring boundaries and I always wanted to splurge my creativity in various forms of artistic expression."

That's one of the reasons Naomi went to art school where she studied Fashion & Photography. After graduating she took several trainings in make-up artistry.

Through the years she also chose to develop other skills as well; styling, (creative) directing, and fashion illustrating. 

In this way, she has been strengthening her platform and broadening her outreach:"I always loved learning new skills. I felt unhappy when I wasn't learning any new stuff." 

Naomi decided to start her first company in 2011. 'Maison Mademoiselle' was an eventertainment agency that focussed on (dance) performances for (mostly) corporate events (national and international): "With my Maison, I learned to manage and mix different talents and I certainly learned what it's like to be an entrepreneur & growing your own business. I am very grateful for this amazing journey and all the talented people I got to work with".

Naomi felt the need to make a complete change:"I was ready for a new chapter in my life and in my professional career." 

She outgrew her first company : "I learned everything I needed to learn and I couldn't wait to take all this knowledge with me, on my new journey."

Naomi is currently studying 'PERFORMANCE'  at The School Of Arts (KASK Ghent - more info here) and she works as a freelance dancer, performer, dance teacher and (fashion) illustrator.

TESTIMONIALS

"Working with Naomi is always a pleasure. She is so passionate about her work and she has the perfect know-how in sensing what our high end clients want and how to get it done." Geoffrey Febri

"You really want to have Naomi in your team. She is a very creative person who does her job with tons of passion and love. She has an eye for detail!" Anniek Devlieger - Apoint bvba

"I love to work with Naomi. She is the perfect combination of a creative mind and a go-getter who knows how to organise the creative, wich makes her of high added value for your project" Dirk Van Steenbergen - Eskimo

"Wij hebben Naomi al voor een aantal projecten gecast als actrice. Zij heeft zich voor deze rollen moeten verdiepen in verschillende merkwerelden en heeft dan via een gecreëerd personage het verhaal van dat merk geloofwaardig vertelt. Ze heeft als actrice ons niet alleen geholpen bij het opzetten van de juiste merkbelevingen, ze hielp ons ook met enkele castings. Naomi is een multipotentialite pur sang met een eigen unieke aanpak die goed werkt!" Bart Clerckx - Keep it Quiet

"Voor de tv-reeks 'De bende van Jan De Lichte' die zich afspeelt rond 1740 had ik een aantal scènes, Moulin Rouge avant la lettre. Meer uitleg heb ik niet gegeven aan Naomi maar dat was blijkbaar voldoende. Het resultaat was beter dan ik voor ogen had en bovendien kende Naomi's team (de actrice, de violist en haar twee danseressen) de act zo goed dat we die zonder probleem ontelbare keren op dezelfde manier konden overdoen, een essentieel onderdeel in het filmproces van dergelijke scènes. Wat voor mij op papier een hindernis leek, was voor Naomi een uitdaging. Maarten Moerkerke - Regisseur
