As a collector I’m very interested in material and a good story. I mainly collect paintings as I believe it's a very interesting medium to tell a story. My collection is a mixture of international established artists like Jonathan Meese, Mike Kelley and Tal R and (young) talent like Allison Schulnik, Juliaan Andeweg and Nick van Woert. I'm also interested in (furniture) design and fashion. I have pieces from Charles & Ray Eames, Poul Kjaerholm, Piet Hein Eek, Tejo Remy and Ilmari Tapiovaara.
Besides my collecting activities I'm one of the founders of AMFAD (Amsterdam Fashion, Art & Design), a platform for fashion, art and design talent. Bringing different networks together we believe in a cross over between the three worlds.
I'm also one of the co-founders of Verfhond projects. An Amsterdam based initiative to promote pure painting worldwide. For the initiative I curate painting exhibitions.
