Other informationCHANGE OF CLUB
After spending three years competing for Port of Amsterdam, in 2020 he switched to Team Zaanlander. "Port of Amsterdam is really a student team, in which everyone wants to develop as a skater but also does something on the side. I chose the matches myself [with Port of Amsterdam], often had no coach and always had to arrange transport. It has taught me that you could go very far alone. That has brought me to where I am now [speaking in 2020], but I now notice that I train with teammates who are super good and have professional coaches who can ensure that I can take that extra step." (, 27 Mar 2021, 03 Oct 2020)

In 2021 he began studying for a master's degree in learning sciences at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. (LinkedIn profile, 01 Nov 2021)
