As a photographer I try to see, instead of just looking, at a world that it's right in front of me through the lens of a camera... Discovering beauty in the ordinary.

Videography is a natural extension of my photography. It is a continuous work in progress, but one that it as fun as rewarding. It depicts my view on the world around me through moving stills.

DOF magazine is my venture into the world of writing, editing, curating and publishing an online photography magazine. It is a media format tasked to gather and publish photography artists discovered in the lost hours of internet mind traveling.

Last but not least, I'm a co-organizer of the Urban Photo Race. A one day (12h) digital photo contest in Amsterdam.

When I'm not behind my computer or my camera, I'm either swinging my sword at Shinkendo classes or running the streets preparing for Ironmans and marathons.

You can catch my attention with the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
