What is she like?

I'm a self-published author, web designer, writing coach, and certified ESL/TEFL educator. I'm not interested in arguing with you about anything.

I’m a writer turned web designer turned creative business consultant. 

I’ve written and self-published seven books. I’ve had about as many blogs. Over the years friends, and friends of friends have asked for my help – to publish their own books, to launch their own websites, to write profiles on them, or press releases, and reviews of their music.

In 2017, I took my professional career background in direct marketing & ad sales and merged it with my two greatest passions: writing and helping people follow their dreams. 

And here we are. If something needs to get done I think fast and creatively and I get it done.

I’m generally very nice, right up until you start dancing about the money. Or, you purposely miss the point of something I said, and avoid grown up communication.

If you need a push and some accountability, I’ll get you there. Put the money down, use your words, and we’ll be besties for ever.

Nineke Creative helps passionate people.

I help people share their gifts with the world, and make money doing it. I help individuals and  start-ups who want to make their mark. I don’t waste people’s money or their time and I don’t work with people who don’t respect my time

I keep my prices fair and I work fast. I have outstanding communication skills, and when you work with me you always get more than what you paid for. I don’t play games and I don’t do the back-and-forth. If you want a website or a blog, or some photos edited I’ll get them done. Pay me on time and we’ll be friends forever. Especially if you know how to say “Thank You.”
