About

JWP 80-80 Writing music ranging from commercials to feature film is my passion and so far I’m blessed to be able to call this my job.

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 and playing the classics I gained interest in writing music myself. Inspired by composers such as Howard Shore, John Williams and Hans Zimmer I started to write music myself. Starting from the age of fourteen I was spending all my spare time into this newly discovered passion. Hence there was no other possibility after high school than studying “Composition for the Media” at the Utrecht School of the Arts!

In 2008 I got admitted and in 2012 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Arts degree. During my studies I worked as an intern in New York for Elias Arts, one of the major advertising music houses out there. It was here where I learned the craft of composing music for advertisements. Even though this is an area I love working in, my biggest passion is and has always been music for film. A great deal of projects I’ve worked on are in this area of the working field. 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” and “Ida” and is, among others, being featured in Terrence Mallick’s recent trailer for the film “Knight Of Cups”
