Born the second of three kids in the Netherlands, I finished  my Bachelor of Music at the Fontys Conservatoire, Tilburg in 2012. During training, I founded an a cappella barbershop group called 'The JukeBoxBoys ' which toured through Holland and Belgium. After finishing my Masters of Music in 2014 at the same Conservatoire, I played in a touring production of 'Klaas Vaak ' (The Sandman) as a puppeteer in the role of Owl, produced by the "Efteling". That same year, I sang in the choir in  'DE | DIE | THE Fledermaus ' for Opera Zuid (Opera South). Between 2015 and 2017 I worked on board SilverSea's Silver Spirit and Silver Cloud for 'Luna Rossa Ltd. London ' as production manager and part of the on-board show team. In 2018, I got cast as Babkak in the Hamburg production of  'Disney's Aladdin ' directed by Casey Nicholaw. The production moved to Stuttgart and from October 2019 till September 2022 I also got to cover the part of the Genie. From November 2022 I joined the Dutch company of 'Disney's Aladdin'  as Stand-by Genie and Babkak and performed at the 'Circustheater'  in Scheveningen until the show closed in February 2023. 

Furthermore, I love to cook, work as a vocal teacher, ride my motorbike and, when weather permits, skiing.
