Other informationRETIREMENT
In October 2022 he announced his retirement from short track in order to focus on his tattoo studio Goons and Queens Heerenveen in the Netherlands. "In addition to skating, I have been busy opening a tattoo studio and I've been putting a lot of energy into it. I tried to qualify for the world cups, but unfortunately I didn't succeed. That also says something about the competitive level in the Netherlands, I can't just compete with them anymore." (, 21 Oct 2022;, 21 Oct 2022;, 21 Oct 2022; Short Track Team NL Instagram profile, 21 Oct 2022)

He has produced music under the name DJ DiAge. "I'm trying to get my own sound. All the big artists have something you recognise them by, that's what I want, but that's tricky. I do not see myself sitting at the office from nine to five. As a DJ you can go anywhere and you can organise your time yourself." (, 21 Oct 2022, 25 Aug 2017)

His mother is from Suriname. (, 02 Jan 2018)
