I was born and raised in Zaanstreek, the Netherlands. I started my professional career in the international shipbuilding and -repair industry. Working all over the world I developed a major interest in people, their behaviour and communities.

During this period I also developed a huge interest in photography which resulted in me studying photography at de Nederlandse Fotovakschool in Amsterdam. I graduated as a professional photographer in april 2010.
