I was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and enjoyed my teenage years during the peak of the "Flower Power Hippie" generation. I hitchhiked through Europe, living on a beach south of Agadir, Morocco for some time to learn English. For most of my adult life, I was a public relations representative for a Christian NGO in the Benelux area. Aside from Japan, I have lived in Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea, and Singapore, just to name a few. I love baking things such as bread, pies, and fruit cakes, and am an avid Blues lover; some of my favorite artists are B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I enjoy a good movie with a glass of wine or a Belgian Trappist and some Rochefort blue cheese.
Since September 2012 I have been an honorary member of the " Kyoto Guide Club". I have been living in Japan for almost 25 years; 5 years in Tokyo, and then 20 years here, in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.
