At the age of 18 I moved to Amsterdam to study at the Netherlands Film Academy, specializing in VFX. I graduated 4 years later after doing my internship at PostPanic. I enjoyed working there so much that I decided to apply for a fulltime position. After nine years of working on short films and commercials I felt ready to start a career as a freelancer
In my spare time I like to play with my son, eat out with my girlfriend and of course I love watching good movies! To balance all the hard work I try to get a good work out five days a week.
To me the most important lesson I've learned so far is that to work successfully with clients you need to be clear about every aspect of the project. Especially when VFX is involved expectations can go in many different directions. That's why I've focused a lot on creating clarity with previz. I've worked on countless commercials during pre-production, creating very clear previz-films that made sure everyone is on the same page. Recently I've been teaching this subject at the Film Academy in Amsterdam.
