As a composer I like to make honest music with which I aim to connect to the listener on an emotional level. I like instruments with character such as acoustic guitar, violin or other string instruments and these are often the starting point in my compositions.
After graduating from the conservatory in Utrecht, I worked for a few years as a bassist on cruise ships, and there I quickly developed my love for composing and producing music. Armed with a laptop, an interface and a microphone, I started making music together with the musicians I encountered on board.
Back in the Netherlands I further developed my skills in various areas: as a musician and composer, but also as a producer and mixer.
In 2018, I started working for Soundstripe, a Nashville-based publisher. For them I made a number of tracks every month. This has led to development and growth in various areas: I not only made great strides as a composer, I started to work more efficiently and my mixes also started to sound better. In addition, I started working more and more in various styles: from acoustic-cinematic, to commercial tracks with ukulele or horn players, and from light-hearted music for a romantic comedy to a heavy rock track. For Soundstripe I made music that can be heard worldwide in TV programs, documentaries and commercials.
In 2021 I had my studio designed and built it myself. With PSI speakers and a calibrated listening room I can now really rely on what I hear and I have been able to make another big step in my productions and in the mixes I deliver.
