Born and raised in the Netherlands, he attained BA degrees in both Journalism and American Studies, and an MA degree in American Studies with distinction from the University of Amsterdam.

He graduated in 2013 and was appointed an Assistant Professor at Renmin University of China. In early 2017 he joined XJTLU. He teaches the modules Global Journalism and Media Theory.
