I've heard "Radar Love" from the side of the stage for over 900 times, changed over 8.000 sets of strings and had Bob Rock walk up to me and ask if he could please take a picture of John Fogerty's "Les Paul" I was servicing. I traded picks with The Prodigy, Mötley Crüe and Iron Maiden. I have played "Hold the line" with Bobby Kimball singing. I still get excited every time I hear a perfectly intonated, tuned guitar, and a flawless guitarrig. Let's tour!

A touring guitartech for many different artists for the past 14 years. I select, set-up and troubleshoot complete guitar rigs. I have been responsible for the daily care of an artists guitars, which means restringing, tuning and intonating them.

Taking this expercience to the studio, I have recorded, mixed and produced several bands, as well as writing and producing my own material. Fascinated by everything involved in creating "the perfect guitar sound", I have gained in-depth knowledge about appropriate gear selection and set-up optimalisation. This means perfect tone and sound. Every single time.



At age 12 I picked up my first guitar together with the Golden Earring album "The Naked Truth". Soon I discovered the expressional powers of a guitar and Music all together, I was hooked. Hooked on guitars and everything about them. When I found myself joining the Golden Earring as an extra guitar player - playing acoustics, Spanish laoud and full-on electric slide guitar at a mere age of 22 - I knew I was on the right path.

Recording, mixing, producing and playing in numerous bands ever since, shows this is more. More than playing a part or being in the spotlight. This is Music.


I am proud and gratefuI for the partnership with Burton.

Burton isn't only about snowboarding and snowboarding stuff, as many people may think. It is a serious high-end brand. I have been using the bags and travellers as long as I can remember because they are rock and roll and idiot proof.

Exactly what you're looking for when you have to travel a lot while carrying all your tech stuff with you. Burton has also got some really cool clothes and especially beanies and caps.

Every roadie loves black clothes, and in fact, everything that is black. So, I'm wearing and using all that is black from Burton. Burton products are for long term use, high-end and rock and roll, so it's everything I need.

I really want to thank Burton for supporting me.

Like what I'm wearing? Check the Burton site for all the cool stuff.
