Puzzled was written by Johanson. 

It's the pseudonym and patronymic of Belgian writer and storyteller Philippe Verkinderen (1981).


Grietkin Deroo (1987) is an arts manager and producer. She is managing and representing Johanson's work and facilitates creative opportunities around his stories. 


Philippe Verkinderen studied at Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound (2005) as a screenplaywriter.  He is a multi-award winning writer and director in both Film (short  'A Gentle Push', Leuven  Short Film festival) and Theatre (Cameretten Jury Prize 2011).


He teaches Storytelling at the LUCA School Of Arts in Ghent.  


His tragicomically (short) stories often explore

the theme of human beings as storytelling creatures,

who invent their own myths and rituals to get a grip on modern day life- and in doing so determine

their own happiness, or seal their own fate.
