I like making things with my hands and being creative. I've always had ideas / new things
in my head which I want to work out for real.
At pre-teen age I made lots of comic book stories, with friends most times.
I also made things out of Technic Lego (I still do that sometimes).
During teenage I did a lot of software programming, I made simple games and vector animations.
By doing creative things with computers I met many other computer freaks and learned
a lot from them.
When I was about 21 years old I started making things from wood, like
clocks, simple sculptures, small closets and 2 times a poolbiljarts table.
I was 26 years old when I discovered Origami. The nice thing about Origami is that you don't need
loads of materials to make something beautiful. Origami doesn't have to be an expensive hobby,
paper is available in almost every store / shop.
Origami is more for me then just designing models and showing them to other people.
I also like making things in Origami style, like animations, computer games / adventures etc.
Just bringing Origami more alive.
Origami has given me a lot, not just financial, but also contacts with other creative people.

My Origami Videos
My videos, mainly Origami tutorials, are on several sites, most of them are on Facebook and YouTube.

traditional media:

Origami workplace / exhibition space / studio
I use the low floor of my appartment for my Origami and paper models. I make most of my videos here
and I use it as exhibition space for my own designed models.
People can make an appointment through email if they want to come and take a look  (I live in the Netherlands)
