He was educated at the Sint-Lucas Art School in this city, and has worked through his company FD-Media since 2005. In 2015 he was one of the participating artists of a benefit comic book for the Kinderkankerfonds (Children's Cancer Fund), starring the local puppet theater hero Pierke. With scriptwriter Jan Kragt, he made a comics biography of George Maduro (1916-1945), a Dutch war hero and the posthumous name giver of the miniature city Madurodam in Scheveningen. 'George Maduro-Held van Curacao tot Madurodam' (2016) was also published in Papiamento, because Maduro was originally from the Colony of Curaçao.
