Jan hits the planet end 1961 in Leuven near Belgium's capital Brussels. In 1985, while studying at Leuven university, he makes his first national front-page news with his hobby: doing PsychoStunts. 'Stunt' because the spectators typically welcome his shows with gasps of amazement. 'Psycho' because all acts rely on psychological techniques. Mid-1989, he records his very first own TV show series. In the wake of that resounding TV success, he decides to focus all energies on his artistic skills. Fluent in English, French and Dutch, since then Jan lectures, coaches younger mentalist colleagues and performs PsychoStunts in his own TV show series, in media guest appearances and in live performances across the globe.
