I am a self-employed rickshaw runner and canal boat captain in Amsterdam where I also have two children, a dual Dutch and Canadian citizen. From 1998 to 2000 I founded and ran Canada’s first officially registered co-ed nude recreation club at a tertiary educational institute, the University of Toronto Nudists or Naturists (UTN.) In 2000 I made a satirical short film called NUDE NOT, which aired on Canal+ television in France, Monaco, Mauritius and Switzerland. In 2017 I launched a petition to decriminalize public nudity in The Netherlands (inspired by the four famous Dutch social innovations of legalized prostitution, same-sex marriage, euthanasia and tolerated soft drugs, I coin it as the 5th Element or Het 5e Element in Dutch), http://naaktopstraat.nl I have enjoyed nudism or naturism since 1980 when I moved to the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in southwestern Germany as a child with my family. I also love art, photography and make short films, music and write articles, screenplays and books, one of which was published.
