I'm an allround bass guitar player living in both The Netherlands and Belgium. My instruments are the solid-body fretted and fretless bass guitar, as well as the acoustic bass guitar.

Musicians that I worked with (or that I'm still working with) are a lot of well-known national and international artists like Toots Thielemans, Trijntje Oosterhuis, Batida, Ekseption, Ilse DeLange, Karel Boehlee, Toon Roos, Gino Vannelli, Kaz Lux, Maurane, Philip Catherine, Dado Moroni, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Peter Herbolzheimer Big Band, Bobby Malach.

Momentarily I'm involved in the following projects:

3HandsClapping (with guitarist Peter Tiehuis and percussionist Bart Fermie)
Peter Hertmans Quartet
Anne Wolf Trio
Karel Boehlee Trio

Since 1985 I'm teaching bass guitar and ensemble at the conservatories of Amsterdam and Utrecht. I regularly travel around in Europe to do workshops and masterclasses.

And every year I teach one week at the summer jazz camp in Belgium “Jazz au Vert” in Wepion (Les Lundis d’Hortence).
