About Me

I lived in China for twenty-two year, 16 years in Beijing, 3 years in Guangzhou and (including partial overlap), 12 years in Nanning. Prior to living in China, I have lived in Germany, Czech Republic and Spain. Since August 2022, I am back in the Netherlands.


I read books in Dutch, English, German, French and Spanish, mainly novels and poetry.
