kik dionAs a musician it is a non stop fall and rise towards creating something that suprises and moves the listeners. This site shows 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 with an almost countless number of other musicians.

I am teaching double bass at the department Jazz & Pop, ArtEZ Conservatory in Arnhem.
