Ever since my childhood, I have been passionate about music and especially guitars, being an amateur guitar player myself. Additionally, I have always cherished an interest in creative processes and manual labour. No wonder I ended up as a guitar builder. This discipline allows me to combine all my passions. I developed my skills at the CMB (Centre for Musical instrument Building) in Puurs (Belgium) where I had the chance to learn from some very experienced teachers, especially Walter Verreydt who introduced me to the wonderful world of the classical guitar. He taught me everything about the tradition of this craftsmanship and its numerous techniques.
