Can you tell us a little more about yourself and what you’ve been doing lately?

I’ve been working for Qmusic for ten years and now have a radio show every Saturday from 7-9pm.: Hot-N-Fun, in which I make sure the listeners get completely chaud for a (home)party. The best RnB classics, hip-hop bangers and sing along guilty pleasures. Besides that I’m “the voice of VTM”, I read the trailers and announcements and – in better times – I’m DJ J.ROOTS behind the decks.

How do you relax after a stressful day?

My cure after a hard day is watching Netflix and Thuis with my boyfriend. Or I go out and drink a dark ‘n stormy’s at the local pub Café Gomez in Ghent.

What do you do in your free time?

Drinking coffee with a friend, practicing DJ sets in my living room, discovering new music, horse around with Kim and Kanye,…

How would you describe your own interior style?

Modern, but cozy. Ikea meets design. 2_cats

Do you prefer to stay at home or to party hard? (pre-corona times ;))

The party never stops, even here at our house we play and dance.

Are you a slob or do you prefer everything neat and tidy?

Luckily, my boyfriend and I are both quite tidy. Our house is never messy.

What is the strangest thing your cats have done?

EVERYTHING those two do is weird. Seeing things that aren’t there and chasing them, walking into the window, because they don’t realize it’s a window, Mission Impossible-wise climbing up the laundry rack. And Kanye (the tabby one) crawls into my boyfriend’s curls almost every night, only to fall asleep halfway there.


Do you like to spoil your cats with toys or gadgets?

Every time we are in the pet store, I take something new with me. They have scratching posts, scratching cardboard, little houses, balls, feathers, lasers,…

How do your cats relax?

By lying down against us or the two of them cuddling.

What’s the biggest mischievousness your cats has gotten into?

Our plants are not safe for even a second, many pots have already been killed and the most beautiful plants are now all in our bedroom, because the kittens are not allowed to be there.

What are your tips for new cat owners?

Be patient and play with your cat. They do that mischief out of boredom. And if you hesitate to take one: take two! Best decision of our lives, you can’t believe how happy those two little animals make us. And hopefully we make them happy as well. 😊
