I am a freelance tour manager, merchandise manager, and stage manager currently based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I started to be active in the Dutch music industry in 2018. Throughout the years I gained experience in various levels of production; first started as an artist manager, but soon enough I realized that my place is more around the stage and on the road. I have a strong sense for punctuality and detailed advancing – as I believe that a well-advanced tour is a big part of success and leaves you with extra time for much-needed sleep, unforeseen issues, or fun on days off. As a tour manager, I work with different scales of bands – going from small level to festival headliners.
When not on a tour, I keep the work balanced with local productions; mainly as a stage manager in Melkweg and being a part of the one and only Arnie Merch core crew.
Tour management: Sick Of It All, Lakshmi, Indian Askin, Queen’s Pleasure, Mazey Haze, Nana Adjoa
Merchandise: touring merchandise manager of Sick Of It All, 5+ years part of the core crew of Arnie Merch (concession work both locally and internationally, arena scale including artists such as Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Rammstein, and many others).
Big smile, “nothing is impossible” and coffee are the three essentials that you can recognize me by. And let’s all not forget about the “Don’t be a dick” mentality.
See you on the road!
