  • Description

    Hey there! I am a guy from the Netherlands living around Europe.

    Earlier this year I worked emergency shifts on a terrace farm beset by storm (3w), at Biológicos da Corujeira (6w), and with Animal Rescue in Algarve Portugal (5w). Those months were full of loving and inspiring people. Now I just came from four unforgettable months in Zweisimmen, where I worked in Paradise

    Until my travels, I was years on my way to becoming a dentist. I switched the boring routine for traveling, working, learning, laughing, and everything else around the continent.

    I grew up in a tight-knit family of seven in a small city amidst the countryside. I studied dentistry, and as a primary school teacher. I enjoy sports, nature, music-art-movies, books, games. Basically I'm a chilled guy with whom you can talk about everything from scientific/deeper convos to just funny bullshit. Down-to-earth, easy-going, and super friendly to everyone.
