Snowboarding has played an immense roll in my life. I started snowboarding at the age of 13 and became a certified instructor at 18 years old. Eventually I left Holland to chase the winters around the globe. That journey took me throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. In 2011 I moved to Canada - initially for just one winter, but that has turned into a permanent move.
Since 2013 I have competed in freeride snowboard competitions across Canada and the USA. I placed 18th of North America in the Freeride World Qualifiers in 2016. However - my focus does not solely lay on competing, but rather on a creative and adventurous style of snowboarding. Whether it be on the resort, in the backcountry or during freeride competitions.
After all - life is short, ride a board.
