I started composing when I was 17. During my studies at the conservatory, I attended composition lessons from Henk Alkema. Since, I kept on writing music since then for various ensembles (classical & jazz/world) and for movie productions.
While composing & playing I become fascinated by the fusion of different styles of music and cultures. I compose, arrange and play both classical and modern (jazz, world, pop-rock) music with equal enthusiasm and devotion.

In my free time I love getting inspired by music of all times and genres, from early music to modern music. On this page I'm keeping a list of recordings on Spotify that are a great source of inspiration for me, both as a composer and as a performing musician.
