My life in a nutshell:
Trouble is Born
Allthough learning and high school was not my cup of tea I did graduated a business & marketing study.
Following My Passion
I always followed my heart more then listening to my mind and after years of fighting because as you know The Netherlands is a flat land and not so much extreme sports over there, I managed to get contracted as a senior extreme sports photographer by RedBull and DC by blowing away other contracted photographers at an event in France.
My Princess Is Born
What an amazing feeling to hold your own daughter in your hands.. My ex wife was so fast that before the nurse arrived I was all ready holding my princess we called her Jola.
Hardest Decision Ever
With the best feeling in the world, the birth of my daughter also came the most hardest decision I ever had to make in my life.. after being 15 years together with my ex wife we decided to go our own way. After years of fighting following my passion as a photographer I decided to be a responsible dad and with my profession I was travelling non stop, so without a back-up plan I chose for my daughter.
Starting The Hangover
After a difficult time because of the divorce and taking care of my daughter on my own.. I had a night sitting and talking with friends and suddenly it struck me, I want to throw like the most craziest party’s.. organising things people could not think of that it would be possible.
Expanding The Business
After a crazy period throwing awesome bachelor and VIP party’s trips to Amsterdam and making friends and memories that will last forever, it was time for the next step.. on demand of our valued clients and my knowledge of South America and especially Curacao and Medellin it was time for the next step expanding my business worldwide by offering our services in Curacao, Aruba, Medellin & Panama!
And Now We Are Here
At the moment of writing the whole world is getting hysterical by the Corona Virus, only last week we received 12 cancellations and while the whole world is undergoing the negative effects of all that is happening just like we do, I questioned myself do I want and can continue with my business. But to be honest it gives me that more motivation to keep fighting harder, survive this period and conquer the world with our crazy activities and personalised service level. I have put my heart and everything I have in this business and will continue whatever it takes I rather die then give up because of some virus. I wish everyone the best and hope to see you soon hosting your next VIP party trip to one of our amazing destinations!
Have you been organising crazy parties like forever?
No I started The Hangover in 2015 because I had to quit my other profession and was thinking what can makes me more happy then organising crazy crazy party’s and making other people happy! That is like a dream job.. Before The Hangover I was working as a professional extreme sports photographer travelling the world putting all my creativity in getting the perfect shot! I have been working as a senior photographer for brands as RedBull, DC & Vans.
