Peet Warmerdam was born 30 maart 1958 in a small town Hillegom, a town in the bollenstreek, a region of tulip farmland in Holland. He is the second son of a family of tradesmen, with three younger sisters. His father was a particulary hard working plumber, who worked trough the days and nights to secure an income for the family.
Due to the family's creative and intuitive backgrounds, his father used to create solutions
for all the technical problems he wold encounter. Peet didn't wish to remain at school,
but prefered to join his father and help him where he could. It is due to this decision that Peet
entered into the work-place, and this without a diploma! he had a rebellious character,
but with exceptional creativty and perseverance.
