So many during my first few years as a beginning drummer: Hans Eijkenaar, Juan van Emmerloot, Kio van Hoecke

Highlight of your career so far:

Playing Japan twice, touring the USA and Europe, and just having already recorded three CD's......oh-and this endorsement.

Drumming strengths:

Being able to play for the song and when playing with a band, really connect with the other musicians. I also try to be original in what I do as a drummer and a songwriter, like the fact that I'm a singing drummer, trying to do something different and keeping things fresh.

Drumming means to me:

Being able to live out my greatest dream and passion and share it with my best friends and all these people around the world.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Don't just be the drummer, try to get involved with the whole creating part and be a musician.

How would you describe yourself:

Passionate, ambitious and driven when it comes to playing and creating music, lazy and silly when it comes to anything else :-)

When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:

I lived it happily, saw the world and broke about a million drumsticks and Meinl cymbals :-)
