At the age of eleven he started acting, after his big brother (thats what big brothers are for) and played in a number of stage pieces, series and films. Writing poetry started a couple of years later and slowly but surely came to the fore.
His first performance was on 5th March 2002 at the Groningen WordSlam and took him straight to the finals. The next attempt was cruelly halted by a ruthless audience. His current job is that of a cleaner at the inns of court; a responsible and therefore satisfying occupation. For he is allowed to clean the garage with a huge machine. Alongside poetry, he also writes stories, scripts and monologues.
