Composer

Since I was a young boy, composing music fascinated me. It feels like an endless journey with always lots of new views around the corner. Some of my greatest heroes in music are composers. Béla Bartók, Sergei Prokofiev, Olivier Messiaen and Billy Strayhorn are the first names that pop up in my head now.

Musician / bands

The main bands that I work with are Zapp4, Haanstra & van Geel, Estafest, the Nordanians and the duo with Matteo Mijderwijk. Besides these bands, I love to play with improvising dancers and to be involved as a guest musician in the projects of others.
