Hello

I was born in The Netherlands in 1986. Job-wise, I enjoy being creative with photography, graphic design, and web-design.

My favorite music is rock music, mostly old & loud.

You can check my formal resume by clicking on the tabs above, but checking out my design work and photos tells a much better story.
