As a musician it is a non-stop rise and fall towards creating something that surprises and moves the listeners. This site will show you some of the results.

At the age of 17 I decided to pick up the double bass. Brought up by jazz, improvised music and pop, I’m still exploring the great possibilities of me & my instrument every day along with an almost countless number of other musicians.

I teach double bass at the Jazz & Pop department  of the ArtEZ Conservatory in Arnhem.
