About Me


'Relentless caper for all those who step the legend of their youth into the noon' (Hart Crane)


From a distance I may appear to be a philosopher lost in far away worlds and words - there's no denying that ;). But my close friends know that I do enjoy life's most precious things such as going out, poetry, good art, movies, beaches and a cup of black gold.

I'm an outgoing person who tries to absorb as much of this world as possible both in fiction and in reality and is always on the lookout for a new adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you have a particular interest in a specific philosopher, I probably can help you understand his texts or just give you a small introduction. Also, if you want some help with a language (dutch, german, french, italian, english) I'd be more than happy to help.

Currently I'd love to learn to surf.... properly. :)
