About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see and expierience as much as I can, meet good people and to remember that life can be spent doing good things.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Holland but spent grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I'm 28 and have worked as an animator for the past 6 years. I am an active person, i enjoy some sports but prefer to play them than watch. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and meeting new people, I am more laid back person than a loud one. I don't live by any specific philosophy but think that an open mind and a sense of humor is a great way to approach most situations.

PHILOSOPHY

I try my best to approach situations with a sense of humor and an open mind.
