Some tag-lines I liked writing
BROS. Je mond gelooft zijn ogen niet.

'Let's not have a drink sometime.' <the line I wrote for Charlie Sheen to pronounce while leaving the rehab clinic in our Bavaria campaign.> 

Career
I disappointed my father for not going to lawschool. He was let down, again (my sister and two brothers also chose a different career path). Years later, I made it up to him. Or at least, I tried. By explaining him the sole purpose of being a solid copywriter; I weigh my words carefully, with every sentence, I choose them playfully. I combine an analytic mind with the utmost effective, creative solutions. Ideas with a strong strategic footprint, originated within a (product based) truth. Which gives me the chance to defend and debate my concepts in front of the most strict and professional judges my clients usually are. Just like my father did during his career, as an outstanding lawyer.
