Michiel van Poelgeest

Composer and Copywriter

Michiel writes: music, copy and journalistic pieces. Stories! In text he aims for the heart of the matter and strives for imagination and clarity. When composing music for advertising, film or documentaries, the depicted atmosphere becomes more important. But you will come across his narrative strength in both disciplines. He is a strategist that loves to take the lead, always trusting his own creative capacity. Just let the man write.
