Dutch privateer , corsair and slave trader for the Dutch West India Company....... He was in the service of the Dutch West Indies Company until he was caught and convicted for smuggling slaves in areas where the WIC had the sole patent for this "business". Later on he captained the ship the Kater. As captain of the ship St. Pieter he transported slaves to Curaçao and the Spanish harbours in the Caribbean. In 1660 he was active as a privateer on board the ship Sinjoor. The records show that he was among the survivors of a ship called the Zeelandia. The ship had sunk in the area of the West Indies.
