About me:

Born in Amsterdam during the spring of 1992 on a Friday afternoon, so loving the weekend is present since the very beginning. Started to play the (acoustic) guitar at the age of 7, influenced/triggered by my older cousin Hans (Bass player of Amaezing Snäke). At the age of 10 I discovered the magnificence of the electric guitar, heavy/heavier music and “collecting” guitar pedals. During my teenage period had several bands, not much, from which Deamension was the most successful/worth mentioning.
Besides Nephylim, I also got a solo project “Neige”, in which I try to catch the essence of dreams/dreaming into purely musical melodies. However due to my busy schedule this project is on hold. 

Apart from music I’m a “techie” hence I’ve got a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering (University of Twente) and I currently work as a Mechanical Engineer in the city of Eindhoven. I’m loving the design process in which I need to use my creativity to design “something out of nothing” which fulfill the needs of the customer(s). 

In the little spare time I have left I love to watch some football, play a bit of tennis or grab a drink/spend time with friends.
