I was born and raised in Amsterdam, where I also went to college. After getting a degree in sociology I decided to change it up and pursue music and I went to a conservatory in the Netherlands. After two years there I got a bit bored and transferred to Berklee, in Boston. Spent almost three years there, and then moved to Brooklyn a little over a year ago.
I still go back and forth between NYC and Amsterdam a lot, and even though I think New York is a great city, I don't see myself growing old on this side of the Atlantic.
- Leaving Las Vegas/Pulp Fiction/I Am Sam/No Country For Old Men/so many good ones! Anything with good acting in it and good dialogue, I love. I just saw Argo and it blew my mind.
- The Wire is the best show ever/I watch a lot of shows but I should stop there.
- Beach Boys/Beatles/Ben Folds/Burt Bacharach/Aretha Franklin/Hall&Oates/Ryan Adams/ lots of stuff, although in my free time I sometimes need a little break from music
- food is probably the best thing in life. That and coffee (I recently got a Nespresso machine and my quality of life has improved drastically)
