I was born and raised in a musical family so it was hard not to step in the same direction. After years of studying classical piano I gained interest in writing music myself. Inspired by composers such as Howard Shore, John Williams and Hans Zimmer I made my first composing steps. But very soon at an age of fourteen I was spending all my spare time into this newly discovered passion. Hence there was no other possibility persue a career as a composer for media.

In 2012 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Arts degree of the University of the Arts in Utrecht. During my studies I worked as an intern in New York City for Elias Arts, one of the major advertising music houses of the USA. Even though this is an area I love working in and had some succes with soundtracks for Adidas, McDonalds and UBS etc. my biggest passion is and has always been music for film. This dedication for film music was not kept undiscovered, early 2012 I’ve been asked to work as a composer for a hi-end trailer-music company who gave me the opportunity to write trailer-music for Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters! Since then my music is supporting trailers for oscar winning films like The Imitation Game, Ida, has it been featured in Terrence Mallick’s trailer for Knight Of Cups and more recently been part of the Game Of Thrones and the Transformers: Bumblebee campaigns. My trailer work has slowly been opening doors to the film scoring world and so far I’ve been fortunate enough to score a couple of short and feature films while dividing my time to work on trailers and commercials.

Music for picture is my passion, the magic that happens once these two are combined is elusive and yet so familiar. To be able to work daily with this magic and share this with other passionate creatives is a dream come true. I hope the future allows me to continue working with people that are as passionate about their craft as I am so we can create magic together.
