I am born and raised in the Netherlands. In 2006, after a year of traveling around the world and after having spent two years in Canada, my partner and I moved to Boston. We like living in New England. We spend quite some time on Cape Cod each summer. We have the opportunity to travel regularly: we have been on all continents, and, maybe more remarkable, in all fifty states of the United States.


I enjoy all kinds of sports, in particular running, swimming, skating, and skiing. As a real Dutchman, my preferred mode of transportation is my bike.

I used to play piano and accordion. Recently I took up the trumpet. Though my progress is slow, I enjoy the practice.
