I am a Dutch film & TV composer. In 2016 I started collaborating with Andrew Lawson, composing music for Sizzer Amsterdam and other media companies. Since 2019 we have worked under ‘Fieldgate Productions’ based at the renowned Fieldgate Studios in Cardiff. This team consists of a group of top composers including Ian Lawson and Ben Heneghan (Fireman Sam, The Great Little Trains of Wales). From here we work with top notch session musicians in the area most of them connected to the Welsh National Opera and the BBC Orchestra.

As a session musician I have worked extensively with Charlie Jones (Goldfrapp, Robert Plant) and worked with great musicians such as David Rhodes (Peter Gabriel, Talk Talk) and Ged Lynch (Peter Gabriel, Natalie Imbruglia) recording at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios.

I have recently teamed up with Sebastian Brice, composing production music for various music libraries at Indefra Studios in Frome.

I did a Master Degree in Composing for Film at Amsterdam Conservatory in 2010 and prior to that a Bachelor degree in Jazz Piano at Enschede Conservatory in the Netherlands. Before music college I spent many years playing professionally, accompanying artists and playing in clubs throughout Holland, Germany, France and Belgium.
