Welcome and thank you for visiting my website,
on June 12th 1972, I was born in the Netherlands. After studying at the university of Amsterdam,
I moved to Hamburg. I call it my home since August 1995 and live here with my family.

In 1997 I started working freelance as a sound-engineer for filmproductions from all over the world.
I work for fictional features as well as for documentaries and commercials. The conditions and challenges for the recording of sound are totally different in these three types of storytelling. I like them all and try to keep on working in all 3 categories. You can see a selection of productions and people I worked with, scrolling down.

I recorded sound for films around the globe: from Alaska to Zimbabwe, from Zambia to Afghanistan. I worked on sailingships on oceans, the icy cold northpole and hot african deserts. Carrying my equipment, I climbed high mountains and walked through deserted rainforests and asian megacities. I worked in warzones, on military aircrafts, on banquets, with kings and queens, criminals and gangsters, homeless people and hollywood stars.

I own a modern set of equipment, which is ever growing and always being renewed so I keep up to date with modern technology. I always try to keep myself mobile and flexible, so I can adapt to different locations and teams quickly and easily. I always carry several backups with me, so I can guarantee good sound at all times. To transport my equipment and crew to whatever location we need to go, I drive a comfortable 4WD.

I am a native speaker of the english, german and dutch language and do swedish and french as well. I like painting, cooking and wine, so I play football and go swimming to keep my body and mind in shape. I don’t like dubbed movies or religious extremists nor people being loud or complaining about the weather. I do like political discussions, Liebermann, Vermeer and Banksy as well as books in hard covers and any kind of creative music...enjoy!

with sunny regards,

Maarten
