About

I am Lieneke Makaske, founder of MakaskeMedia. After working for several companies in media, communication and organization I moved to Cambridge. That gave me the opportunity to start something new. The idea of MakaskeMedia was born. A website to showcase my previous work and a blog to take people with me on my experiences. Below you’ll find an overview of the previous companies that I have worked for.
