Joop is a freelance audio recording engineer who has worked the last fifteen years in national television, having spent the previous twenty years on the road with some of the world's top musical entertainers.
Lately his professional activity has been almost exclusively in the coverage of national and international news for television purposes.
He writes as a therapeutic outlet for himself, in order to help process the sometimes heart wrenching things he witnesses as part of a journalistic team.
Born and raised in Holland and subsequently having lived in places all over the world, he has been a resident of New Jersey's Bergen County since the mid nineties. Now 56 years old, he hopes to travel around the globe for a few more years to come.
