At age 15 I got my first metal cd. Before that I always listened to music that didnt even have guitars in it. So I didnt expect much from this cd that said "Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder". Well.... I was wrong. I almost instantly fell in love with the sound of the electric guitar. The way they screamed, the speed and the classical tunes just gave me goosebumps. From then on I had a new goal in life. Learn to play guitar and hopefully get more people to have this same feeling!
At the age of 23 I auditioned for ReVamp. Floor Jansen her new band back then. After Forever disbanded and she needed a new way to expres herself. I was selected as one of her new guitarist and from then on cool things started to happen. We did some cool tours and festivals but ofcourse... we had to get some new music at a certain point. This was the first real oppertunity for me to show some music of my own and mix it with the two masterminds Ruben Wijga(Keys) and Floor Jansen. From that moment I noticed my new love in music. Writing it!!!
In 2016 ReVamp quit for good as Floor Jansen got asked to sing in Nightwish. There was simply no time left for ReVamp anymore. Fortunately I quickly found different ways to express myself again. I wrote an album with Valerio Recenti for My Propane, finished an album with The Blackest Grey and last but not least... I got asked to play with Anneke van Giersbergen and her gang in the new band VUUR!
