Evertjan grew up in Antwerp (Belgium) where he took his first steps into the circus world at the youth circus school Circolito Mechelen (BE). After some wandering around the world and the start of a major in Archaeology, he came again in contact with the circus world, by chance. Circus would be everything from now on. He graduated at Fontys Academy for Circus and Performance Art ACAPA Tilburg (NL) in 2011. He specialized in hand-to-hand and formed duo Zinzi & Evertjan.
