Photography & Dance
I was born and raised in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands. I started dancing at the age of 14.
After graduating from a high school for the arts I got admitted to BFA dance performance at Codarts University in Rotterdam, where I was trained in contemporary, ballet, jazz and various other styles of dance. After school I could be found teaching dance classes at different schools in the Rotterdam area.
In the beginning of his 3rd year at Codarts I was chosen to study abroad for a year at State University of New York Purchase, bachelor of performing arts. This gave me the opportunity to explore a different scene. At Broadway Dance Center and Peridance I took a lot of courses. I had the opportunity to work with Sidra Bell Dance New York as an intern. When I returned to the Netherlands I immediately acquired a role in the dance production of Isabelle Beernaert, ‘Red, Yellow & Blue’. With this production I performed in all major theaters in the Netherlands and Belgium. After graduating from Codarts I danced in another production for Isabelle Beernaert called ‘Glass’. In the summer of 2015 and 16' I was cast to be part of the main stage team of Tomorrowland in a place called Boom in Belgium. Being able to perform on the biggest stage of the world in front of 60,000 people next to DJ's such as 'Afrojack' 'David Guetta', and 'Martin Garrix' this was a dream coming true for me. I also worked as a performer for Nike, Heineken and from October 2015 I toured in Germany with ‘Hans Klok and the New Houdini’. After that I danced in a Opera with the Dutch Traveling Opera called : 'Ariadne'
My huge passion for photography (as you may have noticed) started in New York. I run my own photography company and thats probably why you are here. I work as a portrait, wedding, fashion, event and business photographer.
I worked as a photographer with companies such as Coca Cola, Rabobank, Bol.com, PepeJeans, Tomorrowland, Soul15, Homerr, AutoPoint AutoBinck groep, Sonny Op Stap, Impload, Rauw, and Sharklifebrand.
I am also working as a Fashion and commercial model for companies such as Nike, O'neill, Nivea, Lays, G-star, Redband, We Are Labels.com, Sharklife, MAC, Nike Jordan.
