About me

From 2000 to 2005, I studied the organ at the Rotterdams Conservatorium with Aart Bergwerff. The organ is really my instrument, about from the time when I was six years old. Besides that, I quite like strumming the piano, as you can see on the picture to the left.

From 1998 to 2005, I served as organist and pianist at the Scots International Church in Rotterdam, jointly with Jan-Hendrik van de Kamp. Also, I regularly played the organs in the Marekerk and the Academiegebouw in Leiden.

Currently I am abroad: I'm living in Graz, Austria, to work on a mathematical project. Click here for my maths homepage.

Read all about my final exam concert (conservatory, 2005) on the final exam page (with MP3s!).

With some interesting pics: the organ and myself!
