I've changed Paris for Amsterdam in early 1995, where I got lucky by my first visite to the most famous pop-temple in town Paradiso. Later that year, I started working for several culture oriented institutions, such as: Eurostage, Orkest & Gehoor, Kunst & Bedrijf, BNA... Last in the row: The John Adams Institute (from co-founder & director Anne Wertheim). I have been the event-coordinator from September 2004 to December 2011. Working with 3 directors: Monique Knapen, Corine Krijgsman and Russell Shorto. Together with the JAI volunteers, we've organized a total of 121 lectures events with the best American (and some English) authors.

Fall 1968, I had to leave the US and went back to Europe, Paris this time. A Dutch theatre -maker I had met there advised me to follow my passion: live music. Thanks to him, I’ve worked for a famous Dutch singer, and later for festivals and theatres with French singers, rock-bands, jazz-musicians & world music artists. I've lived and worked in Paris for 27 years.

In 1966, I went to New York City where I got inspired by the New York City Art & Music Scene. A specially by Bill Graham's Fillmore East on 3th. Avenue. They produced daily concerts with the superstars of the time.
Remarkable was the performance of The Doors on March 22, 1967: although they were retarded by the police for more than 45 minutes, they played better than ever before.

I was born on the first day of January 1946, in devastated Rotterdam.
