Born and raised in the Netherlands Europe and always been an entrepreneur and worked in many exciting projects and interesting businesses.
Businesses ranging from orthopedic shoe repair to locksmith to design and building of a unique concept 1950's American restaurant / Diner called "Caddys Diner" for which I in 1995 received a design award in London England.
I am a life time passionate motorcyclist who started racing dirtbikes at the age of eleven with the support of my parents winning my first 125cc motocross championship in 1982.
I retired from racing in 1985 and went back into business and
in my spare time I restore classic cars and bikes for pleasure and always try to set trends with home build projects.
During a motorcycle tour I met my wife Patty and we travelled many roads together riding our bikes.
Motorcycling was part of our lifestyle but during the time our children were born my wife and I did not have the time to ride anymore.
Now that the children are old enough to be on the back of a motorbike has come we like to introduce them to the world of motorcycling. To experience the feeling of true freedom and smell the country as being part of it as we did so many times.
Since 2001 we live in Canada BC and I aspire to be back in the saddle and get my early teenage kids off the couch and into the back seat of our motorcycles, away from the daily battle with them about their electronic screen devices to find outdoor adventures.
Not only our kids, "but to show all kids" that there is a real world out there with real people. Together with my wife Patty and my two children son Mika (14) and daughter Zohra (10) our goal is to make this in an unforgettable documentary that will motivate many children and parents to go travel with their kids or do activities that make them forget these devices, every hour our we get them off is an hour we won !
Our Mission adventure is to give something to our future generation by getting as many kids as possible off the couch and show them a real world of adventures.
Together we can make this documentary happen.
