“I come from a small town in The Netherlands where I used to work at my father’s gym. My dream is to become a TV host that is why I came to Amsterdam.

In the beginning I had several jobs a day to make a living. After a while I managed to get work as a model.
A few months ago I started presenting for a music channel called Xite!

I know it sounds as a cliché but I am convinced that you can achieve anything you wish as long as you are optimistic and truly believe in what you are doing.

I work 24/7 and I enjoy every single moment of my life.”
