My self-summary
Originally from the Netherlands I've been in the Bay Area over 8 years now. 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 help commercialize space.
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 enamoured with Detours. And Yuval Harari's 'Brief history of humankind'.

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
Deconstructing reality.
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. Or if you'd like to take a Detour together (detour.com)
