My self-summary
Originally from the Netherlands I've been in the Bay Area for almost 7 years. I'm a relaxed, open guy with a wide range of interests. An introvert by nature, I love intellectually stimulating discussions, art, music, cinema, bars, tech geekery. I guess the most important thing I am looking to share is inspiration and adventure, aka life.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing my part to commercialize space + a new interest in the intersection between neuroscience and computing.
I’m really good at
Seeing the bigger picture.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Danish accent? (hint: I'm Dutch)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most recently I've been captivated by the coursera course 'A brief history of humankind'. Amazing story.

More generally, in no particular order: Werner Herzog, Marcel Proust, Andreij Tarkovski plus many others. Mostly reading non fiction these days so bookwise it's kinda hard.

Movies I appreciate alternative, non mainstream. Worked in different cinemas in Amsterdam so i've seen a lot of movies.

Same holds for music. Love White Stripes, Bach, Moss, Muse, Drum n Bass, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Radiohead, Steely Dan, Talk Talk, dEUS, Phoenix....

Food is wide open, love indian, Thai, sushi, but open to everything (more or less)
The six things I could never do without
Living without the Internet would definitely be a challenge. Have been there before, but nowadays its kinda unimaginable. Inspiration is another one. Love. Air. Life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to deconstruct reality. And what i'll do once I get my greencard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either meeting up with friends in a bar or having dinner. Or I'm catching up on reading and laying low after a busy week of work
You should message me if
You have a good suggestion where we could meet that is both intellectually stimulating and a good place for a chat
