Started playing guitar since the age of 13. Have played in many clubs of The Netherlands, including Paradiso. Started my own music company in 2003. Did many projects for documentaries, tv, radio and internet. Created scores and leadertunes for short video's. And many people in the recording industry know me as one of the sound designers for Propellerhead Reason music software. I like serious artistic stuff the most. Blending tradition with something new. I love acoustic and electric guitars. I am not interested in epic orchestra work. I love to use smooth ambient under voices though. I strive for the best and can only do work I am emotional connected with.

Unique traits: I am an expert on modern DAW software and designing sounds. Propellerhead Reason for example ships with hundreds of my patches and samples. I am broadly oriented and thanks to my music theory knowledge and sound knowledge I am capable of sculpturing any sound imaginary.
