from 1978 till 1990 I ran a studio with my best friend, Rien van Nieuwenhuizen, first in Rien’s attic near the Hollands railroad in The Hague, later in Pijnacker. We made various productions and gradually the studio became more professional and we also worked for others. In 1990 I decided to use my knowledge of studio equipment and technique in general as a consultant in the field of studio construction and sales. Years later I returned to being a studio engineer and started to focus on Mastering
Between 1990 and 2014, I held the role of Product/Account Manager with various Dutch importers, spearheading the representation of renowned brands including Marshall, Korg, Digitech, JBL, Soundcraft, and Shure across the BeNeLux region.
During this period, I played a pivotal role in the triumphant introduction of the inaugural digital mixing console by Spirit, a subsidiary of Soundcraft. Additionally, I contributed significantly as a member of the English post-development team.
Subsequently, I transitioned to the position of Account Manager at the Dutch musicians’ magazine, Musicmaker. In this capacity, my responsibilities encompassed advertisement sales, promotional initiatives, communication strategies, and event coordination. This multifaceted role allowed me to leverage my expertise in fostering effective communication channels and organizing impactful events within the dynamic music industry landscape.
With 1988 as my first, I visited the NAMM show in Los Angeles and the Frankfurter Musik messe every year, among other functions, as an advertising acquisition manager for Musicmaker magazine and as a Sales Manager for various companies and brands such as Mackie, Soundcraft, JBL and countless others. During these shows I made many (music) friends and also met a celebrity here and there.

I was educated as an electronic engineer / instrument maker at the Anthony Fokker school for aviation and electronics in The Hague and started my career as an electronic aviation instrument maker at KLM.
I used my technical skills and education at companies like Xerox (service engineer), as an audio technician in my own and other studios and as a consultant in the 90’s where I advised on sound studio construction and also gave acoustical advice.
