I was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, grew up in Ireland and Istanbul, now living in Amsterdam.

I have been active in the music industry for  almost 20 years now as DJ, booker, promotor, tour manager and event producer, label boss and A&R. I am also the founder of Phat Elephant Recordings which I run together with Dennis Konijnenburg, Whirling Wolf Recordings and co-founder of Shaman World Music Club and last but not least I also work for finetunes as freelance A&R for Netherlands and Turkey in search of quality labels to support with world wide distribution.

I have been passionate with photography since 1996 when I received my first camera,
an old Canon TX on my 17th birthday from my father.

Beside music I am skilled in:
Photography, Video & Editing and WordPress implementation.
