Experience:

Last not least do I have 12 year podium experience being the singer of several bands
(punk, new wave, musical-theater and heavy metal). And they got me in it again.
We will be playing again in a new band. More Info on the verge here! Stay tuned!

I have been working part-time as an expert in
Automation at the Heidemij BV in Arnhem.
I left there the 1 of may, 1997, with pain in my heart.
I already miss the buggers there…. Evelyn, Kat of course, Bren, Kees, Martien and Fred, André,
Wim (twice), Herman,
Henky (twice), Ben, Joost and all the rest… Can’t mention them all here, can I.

On the other hand, I found …and lost a very good new boss in
Aranea Consult B.V. in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
I also am the left and right hand of Anita van
Kempen, a very fine artist from Nijmegen (La Pempí)
(who also happens to be my wife … 😉 ).

Finally: Check my band The Touch ! The best Nederbeat band ever!!!
