Born in Purmerend in 1880. He is mentioned in the Purmerend civil registry as ‘plateelschilder’ before he moved to Delft. He arrived in Gouda end of August 1898 from Delft and is registered as ‘plateelschilder’ until he moved to The Hague in December 1901. Apart from the period from May to December 1902 when he returned to Gouda he lived in The Hague, where during 1910 and later he is registered as a trading agent. His only known work at PZH is on tiles including large Paysages.
Based on his oeuvre it is hard to determine when he stopped working for PZH, but there is nothing that indicates he continued after 1902.
