Dutch private collector of Roman Glass (field of interest: 50 BC – 450 AD) since early 2003. He has organized, as a guest curator together with his friend Hans van Rossum, an exposition “Romeins glas, geleend uit particulier bezit” (in English: Roman glass, borrowed of private property”) in the Thermen Museum in Heerlen (29-04-2011 to 28-08-2011). There have been shown 280 Roman glass objects of 11 Dutch private collections. On that occasion they both wrote the book “Romeins glas uit particulier bezit” (in English: Roman glass of private property).
