I do own a company named “Filmpeople” together with my friend Sander Jansen.

I plan to live and work in all three of them coming years, just like i do now. It feels pretty good!

My film career started when i was 11 years old. I got to play a part in the Dutch feature film 'The Good Hope' by Guido Pieters. I still remember the cousy atmosphere on the set. During a shoot at the Pinewood Studios in London, i and another kid actor decided to shoot a little film of our own. We used his fathers video camera and it became my first steps towards directing films.
Before this ‘filming experience’ i have been touring Europe with my parents as members of a theatre group called 'Dogtroep'. My older sister and i were playing in great, magical and absurd performances at the streets of France, Austria and Germany. It is one of the most fantastic memories i have from childhood.
Today i focus on writing my screenplays. When i find the time i shoot short films on the side. I enjoy giving editing advices to fellow filmmakers now and then, just as much as i like to provide someone with new angles on a screenplay.
