From a young aged I starting learning several instruments. I grew up in a musical family so there was always a lot of music around. I learned to play the accordion, piano, drums and later guitar. When I was 18 years old I discovered the double bass and it was love at first sight. I decided to go for it. After practicing hard for two years I auditioned for the conservatory and I went to study classical music for several years.
During my studies I got into many more styles than just classical music and I started playing electric bass as well. Today I am a freelance musician and I have played concerts all over the world.
A few of the ensembles that I have played with are the Metropole Orkest, the NBE (Dutch Wind Band), Holland Opera, Duda Paiva Company and the Celebrity Edge Theatre Ensemble.
Besides being an active performing and recording musician, I also work as a composer and arranger. My most recent work is the album ‘Prachtige Wezens’ (beautiful creatures in Dutch) in collaboration with spoken word artist Ozan Aydogan. I wrote the music for three of the album’s tracks. It can be found on Spotify.
