About Me


is to contribute making the world a more sustainable place


I am person who is never tired of exploring. Curiosity is my fuel and motivation. I enjoy diversity, in every terms. I do not to miss the opportunity when it comes to exploring to a new place, meeting new people, and learning an interesting fact.

I just moved to Utrecht in July 2017 and look forward to making new friends.

I enjoy the company of people who are passionate about what they do. I am quite a good listener and enjoy the good time spent with friends very much . Saturday nights are my favorite time of the week! :)

I used to be a semi professional musician in the past, it is a shame I don't have time for that anymore. I play guitar and harmonica. I taught harmonica and guitar in the past.
