Born in The Netherlands in 1964. I turned out to be the best in my class in drawing. To avoid 'real' jobs, I clung to this talent. Art lessons at the secondary school and four years at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, were the only education moments on the way to my goal: being an independant cartoonist. From 1991 on I worked for several - mostly regional - Dutch daily's: Haagsche Courant, Leidsch Dagblad, Haarlems Dagblad, Haarlemmermeers Dagblad, Almere Vandaag and Almere Dichtbij.
International cartoons are drawn for the Dutch site Joop and Cartoon Movement. Examples can be found on the page (Inter)national, the only other page on this website in English. I perform live stand-up cartooning in both English and Dutch, during meetings and seminars. And I also give workshops cartooning where ever it is needed. In my career I have made illustrations for a few children's books. My comic friends The Experts (up until now in Dutch only) are assisting me in my cartoons for Almere Dichtbij. My gags with Kas (also only in Dutch) appear in Knocky Magazine. For contact please mail or call me.
