Look mom, I became a copywriter! That means that I've finally found my excuse to show up late, dress shitty, and tell bad puns. Hah!
It also means that I am good with stories and great with words. They are my bread and butter.
I’m the kind of guy you either hate or love. If you can stand my sarcasm and don’t misread my assertive nature as arrogance, the ride will be long and fun. If not, well… at least you’ll know it ride away. (sorry)
When I'm not working you are most likely to find me on a bike, boat, golfcourse or the internet.

The life before
Born in '93. Started talking in full sentences after 7 months and walking after 16.
Yes, I was telling stories 9 months before taking my first steps. Some people might use this as an excuse to write something like:
"The fact that I was telling stories 9 months before taking my first steps speaks for itself. Something something about being a born storyteller.. blah blah blah."
Thank god I'm not like that.
