As of my birth on the 24th of March 1986, I have lived in Utrecht (The Netherlands) for all of my life. I went to primary school and high school there as well. I received VWO education, taking the technical/scientific branch (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science). At the age of 18, I finished high school and entered Leiden University to study Japanese, a three year Bachelor study. This is my third year, so I'm almost finished. I'm currently taking Chinese language as a minor as well. From September 2007, I will study Cognitive Artificial Intelligence at the University of Utrecht. My interests are technology, languages in general, Japanese, Chinese, psychology, computers and artificial intelligence.
