As a child, I've always been struck by music. Playing in bands in my teenage years and learning how to record our songs. When growing older, maybe wiser, I wanted to pursue a career in the music industry and entered RITS, a school for audio-visual arts and engineering. Once graduated from this college I started working as a freelance live soundtech. Joining a great team and covering a wide variety of shows. After a while I organically ended up on stage, together with the musicians, as a monitor engineer. Mostly tucked away side-stage but nevertheless, felt at home mixing musicians wedge and/or in-ear mixes.
I've never stopped playing and recording but the main theme of the past years was focused on the live-side of the industry. Throughout my own journey, I discovered an amazing echo of learning myself. How to teach others to do what I do but mostly to inspire them to find their own path in the music industry. Be it as a musician, technician or both. Teaching gives me lots of enjoyment and some of my students have now surpassed me on some levels. This way it all comes full circle and I can start learning from them. With all this knowledge and experience I even ended up building some custom racks for touring and installs. All these different paths in the industry, exciting stuff!
With over 20 years of experience in the music industry, I have worked with interesting clients, bands and festivals. And I thought a lot of fellow enthusiasts. I’ve started my own academy, called AV School. This is a new adventure but I love to keep working the festivals or mixing and mastering in my own private studio.
I hope we meet on one of the many interesting paths in the music industry. And never forget, MUSIC IS A WAY OF LIFE!
I’m specialized in mixing monitor wedges and in-ears for musicians on stage. Working with all brands of mixing desks and gear. I can provide my own setup if needed.
