About Me

Last year I moved to New York, after having spent most of my life in the World's Biggest Village, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Basically I graduated as an musicologist, because at the time I was too scared too apply at a conservatory. After several years of various playing, composing and teaching assignments in the music field (not to mention stints in software programming and sitebuilding), I seem these days to be steering back onto my original track, ethnomusicology.
