I don't skate or play football
I am not a super CEO, I am not Hans Zimmer, Tim Cook or JS Bach but I have written music you will love (you will absolutely find something when you have more than 24 hours time to listen to all my music).
I look back to what I have created for many people, films and my website Back to Normandy. But also (co)founder of all kind of cultural organisations. Creations as an example for my and perhaps your goal.
My character: I am simple and direct. But I am not simple and direct with people with their values and interests or ignore mine.
I love people, I love music, I am aware of history, I love to create. I organize, I have created organizations. My mind will be busy for you when we work together!
I have a lot of skills according to the testimonials of other people: See https://www.backtonormandy.org/testimonials
I love people, I do like to give my skills and endorsements to music, to organizations, to humanity. Listen to my music, read my life.
Be prepared when we work together, you will have an exciting period. You will not be disappointed..,,but I am not common, I have not a standard CV! My problem and my luck!
Perhaps I am your mirror you (don't) want to see. Perhaps I am your solution. Mail me at
Back to Normandy
Back to Normandy is building the story of D-Day before (RAF, USAAF) and beyond, from Normandy to the Baltic.

Night and Fog and Music inspired by D-day
One of my most important (involved) two works are my scores for the film Night and Fog showing the final days of the Holocaust and a music overview of World War II.
I wrote the music, because I felt I had to compose it my way.
You can see the films and listen to the score here: https://vimeo.com/7452803. Music inspired by D-day, read this article and see the film: https://www.backtonormandy.org/music-inspired-by-d-day.html
My work as manager, founder, etc.
