Computer Consultant/Counselor in New YorkAfter living in Holland for ten years, his business failed and he moved to the United States. As a green card holder living permanently in New York City, he obtained a high school equivalency diploma and B.A. degrees. As part of college classes in English, he wrote a few stories and essays. Soon there was no time for writing since he’d picked up three hobbies: social dancing, traveling, and karate. He worked in computers and later as a counselor.

Psychologist/Writer in The Hague, The NetherlandsAbout two decades later, he moved back to The Netherlands where he initially worked as a counselor/social worker. He completed a graduate degree and attained the qualifications for a senior psychologist (registered "Gezondheidszorgpsycholoog") and Family and Relational therapist a few years before he was eligible for early retirement. In preparation for retirement he decided to finally pick up his lifelong hobby: writing. From the year 2000 on, he attended more than a dozen writing courses and workshops, such as at the Schrijversvakschool ‘t Colofon (now Schrijversschool) in Amsterdam and the correspondence courses Fiction Writing levels 1, 2, and 3 at The University of Iowa. Beatrijs Nolet, renowned Dutch writer of children’s books and teacher of writers’ workshops, was an important teacher, mentor and coach; she taught him the nitty-gritty of the craft.
