17-05-1966 Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Went from semi pro windsurfer to working as a pool cleaner and carpenter in the us.
From there on, back in the Netherlands, worked in television and the advertising world as an creative director, tv director and Dop.
Has intensly travelled the world to film the most extreme stunts and action but also human interest documentaries to show how different cultures live under different circumstances in this world.
To make life simpler and quieter decided to focus more on photography, only to find out, that the drive to capture the unexpected and unpredictable moments of life created just the opposite.
The photography style is raw, honest and in the moment and covers action, portraits and travel.
It is the moment,the surroundings and the subject, being photographed, that dictates me in working as a photographer/filmer.
