In 2005 Tjebbe Tjebbes started writing for Spunk.nl, at the time the largest E-zine for young people in the Netherlands. A selection of his work got printed every week in cooperation with NRC Handelsblad (a Dutch daily evening newspaper). After serving as the editor in chief of the same E-zine Tjebbe worked freelance for a number of digital and printed media. Currently he is finishing his History degree at the University of Warsaw in Poland.
In collaboration with STBY Tjebbe has worked on several qualitative research projects focused on issues regarding young people in The Netherlands. From pitching a new master course for the University of Tilburg to investigate how Dutch students manage their finances for the IB-Groep (the national body that handles all student loans and studentships).
