Personal Facts

My favourite food is...
A good Brazilian barbecue and cherries. I love cherries!

My favourite thing about Groningen is…
Difficult to choose. I guess it is everything!

My favourite place in the world is…
My house.

Something most people don’t know about me is...
That I was born and raised in a military dictatorship and that I used to work as a professional swimming referee.

My biggest achievement is...
Raising my children. One is a nice grown woman that gave me a cute grandson. My two boys are still “work in progress”, but this is also going really well.

When I’m not working I’m busy...
Enjoying my family or a nice conversation with my friends.

My inspiration is...
Nature, science, reason and good-hearted people (Am I being cheesy?)
