Why do you work for RASL?

Music has been part of my life from a very early age. Playing the violin, singing in bands, writing my owns songs… Still, I always knew that I wouldn’t be happy making music alone. I always had an appetite for learning new things: be it about geology, history, philosophy, economics…In the end, it all deals with the world we live in and that is fuel for my music, for my songs.  I am very happy that Rotterdam now offers the Double Degree programme for students who share that broad interest with me and I am proud to be part of the team to make this happen.
