About Me


Canadian Roots...
I was born on February 27th, 1973 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. At the age of 3 we moved to the Caribbean, first to Jamaica. 

...Aruban Soul
In the Summer of 1978 we moved to the beautiful island of Aruba, where I lived until I was 18 years old. Growing up on Aruba, I was exposed to and influenced by a wide range of music which helped shape me into the musician I am today.

At the age of 18, I moved to the Netherlands to study law at the University of Leiden. I hold two law degrees from this University. In my daily life, I work as a tax lawyer.

Passion for music
Aside from practicing law, I am also an avid songwriter and musician. My solo albums "Let It Ride" and "Right Here" are available on iTunes and CD.
