Volunteer since

Nederlands, English, French, Japanese, Spanish
I am fluent in English, Spanish and Nederlands writing, reading and speaking. I am in the progress of learning and still have am less fluent in Japanese reading and understanding higher level conversations (politics,economics, etc). I am capable of understanding and initiating daily life conversations. My Japanese is in an intermediate level I can understand French, but speaking needs more practice.


I studied East Asian culture. I learned how to speak Japanese and East Asian history, religious practises and philosophy. I did a minor in economics, and as a hobby I learned the art of brewing. This gave me the chance to start working this last year in an upstart brewery. Since last month I have been promoted to head brewer. Perhaps my studies will not be as handy as as a skill, still the life philosophy and history can be handy for a great conversation. I am very pationate in developing many new skills, anything that is hard work labor and has something to do with envirmental friendly practices and sustainability will get the light of focus on. I would do my absolute best effort to master these skills.
