What interests me

Apple

De manier waarop Apple als merk en bedrijf zich weet te profileren vind ik fascinerend. De ongekende passie voor design, gebruikersgemak en oog voor detail vind ik bewonderenswaardig.

Coffee

I enjoy coffee culture, from roasting my own beans, acquiring the skills needed to be able to brew a perfect brew, to finding the gear that fits my needs. I do not hesitate to put in the extra effort to create a better tasting cup. I enjoy french press, aeropress and espresso based coffee most, although I like to brew milk based drinks as well.

Reading

My passion for reading books started with the Harry Potter series in 2002. Since then I have built up a decent collection from many different genres, but my preference is in fantasy and science fiction. One of the reasons I like reading is how I can get engrossed within the world the author created.

My top 3

  1. A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones)
  2. 1984 – George Orwell
  3. The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss

Media

Music has been a passion ever since I have been able to listen to portable players. Which started with CD players, mp3 players to my first iPod nano in 2005. I love movies and tv series, one of the reasons I worked for so long as an usher at Pathé Cinemas during my time at university.

Audio and headphones

Connected to my passion for music is my interest in high end audio gear. I discovered the relevant subreddits for audiophiles and headphones.
