About Natasja Pijpstra
My name is Natasja Pijpstra. I’m from Haarlem in the Netherlands and am on my second Working Holiday Visa (arrived in July of 2016). I came to Australia to experience living in a different country and to travel. My fascination with the media started when I was young and has never dissipated. I’m very interested in being a part of creating successful shows and television programs. I started studying Creative Business: Media & Entertainment in 2013 at the University Inholland in Haarlem. It was here that I got first hand experience working on real projects. As a manager of a small team I worked on varying projects from concept to production and everything in between including: writing, pitching and finding a company that was interested in producing the show. Although my passion is in television and music, I also worked on projects in radio and events while also incorporating marketing and sales. Meanwhile I started working for Haarlem105, a television station in Haarlem where I started as a journalist. Responsibilities included: camera work, editing, research, redaction as well as being a production assistant. Lastly, I had my own television and radio show called “The Sound of Haarlem.” I also worked with singer/songwriter Celine Cairo, assisting with her tour, new music video and as her PA. Since I moved to Australia I have worked as a talent manager/assistant show caller at the 2017 AACTA Awards. I feel comfortable working in high-pressure and time-sensitive situations such as this because I feel that it increases my motivation and allows me to achieve better results. I am now looking forward to gaining more experience in the media industry in Australia. I am open to advancing my education and skills if needed. I look forward to hearing from you!
