During my studies at the Conservatory of Haarlem, I found out I really like recording and mixing. So much in fact, I assisted most of the studio sessions for two years, was an assistant at the week of recordings with the conservatory at the Wisseloord Studios in 2019 and was an intern at the Wisseloord Studios and Trypoul Recording Studios. Currently I’m a freelance recording and mixing engineer working at Trypoul Recording Studios and Wedgeview Studios.
I worked with bands like TerraDown and MoltonGrove and did orchestral edits for Das Deutsches Filmorkester Babelsberg (recorded with Rammstein) for the new Alphaville record.
I really like the technical side of the studio, but I’m also a musician, meaning I have a view on music and how that music should sound. I combine the technical and musical side of the job, creating an environment to strive for the best.
I started my music career at the age of six as a violin player. During high school I got introduced to pop music, starting with The Police, but later I discovered bands like Metallica, Rammstein and Green Day. I developed interest in playing louder and picked up my father’s Stratocaster, but soon found out I wanted to try the bass guitar. From the first moment on I was completely seized. In 2009 I bought my first bass guitar and started taking lessons. I immediately thought this was something I wanted to do professionally. Fast forward: in 2016 I got admitted to the Conservatory of Haarlem. There I studied pop music but also stayed loyal to my love for heavy music. In 2016 I co-founded heavy rock trio Operation Hurricane, which was quite successful with two singles and around 40 shows amongst which Paradiso and Bevrijdingspop Haarlem. I left the band in 2018. After that I joined pop punk band Skir and we’re still going strong.
My hunger for playing metal(core) hasn’t been satisfied yet. If you’re interested, get in touch!
