In March 2001 I had a snowboard accident and broke my back. Now I'm paralysed from the waist down. Before this time I've always been in-line skating, snowboarding, skateboarding, and wakeboarding. Because my passion to do these sports is so big I started looking for a way to do my sports in an alternative way.
The accident could not stop me from moving my borders. I find the most challenges in skiing and wakeboarding. Beside my sports I run my own bussines K-J Projects. With this company I work on a for better lifestyle for disabled people. www.kjprojects.com

In the summerseason I go wakeboarding, my homebase is Down under recreation Nieuwegein, Holland, moreover I try on as much other locations in the Netherlands and foreign countries as possible.
In the wintermonths I'll go out in the snow for some serious skiing. Beside Freestyle I'm also active in racing. in 2010 I competed at the paralympics in Vancouver2010 and in to 2014 i will take part in the paralympic games in Sochi. I compete in all disciplines being slalom, giant slalom and Super-G and Downhill. My specialties are the speed disciplines.
