You will not find fancy graphics or layouts here. I love simplicity and focus.
## About me
I'm currently working for NXP Semiconductors and acting as vice-chair within Accellera's SystemC Verification Working Group.
In general, I'm interested in computer related technology.
Playing the trumpet is what I've been doing since the age of 9.
I live near Eindhoven, Netherlands with my wife and two children.

I'm currently playing 2nd trumpet in Eindhoven Jazz Orchestra as well as being section lead in pop/soul/funk/jazz band Voiceware. Next to that, I'm also a member of Eindhoven based Jazzaphine, a funk/jazz band with plenty of room for improvisation.
I played 4th, 3rd, 2nd and lead trumpet in Bigband Studentproof for about 20 years.
I was section lead in vocal jazz group Antwood Affair for roughly 13 years.
For a short time, I played 2nd trumpet in Bigband Jazzcape.
From my teenage years until well into my thirties, I played trumpet in Kiep Kwajt.
I have written a lot of arrangements of different kinds of music, specifically for brass/wood ensembles and horn sections.
Due to a lack of time, I have put this activity on hold. However, if you are interested in receiving a list of ready-to-play arrangements, feel free to contact me.
