I started out in the camera shop of my father as a gofer. Eventually I learned to take photographs, crop and print. A friend and I started making films with a borrowed Kodak Brownie ( 8 mm film camera) from my father's shop. We wrote a script so I could kiss the most beautiful girl in school who was invited to play the female lead.

7 years later I am a much asked for editor. I worked for all current affairs and sport programs on Dutch TV. In 1976 I became a cameraman too, both in video and film and shot hundreds of sports video clips and paralel to that career I produced a host of industrial films world wide. In 1990 I was headhunted by Avid Technology Inc. to become one of their evangelists to promote non linear editing ( virtual editing) which was just invented. Since 2003 I am freelance again.
I am a passionare professional.
