There is a life beyond astronomy, for example, traveling and immersing oneself in a different culture. For example, traveling to astronomical observatories around the world and meeting other instrument builders...Oh and I happen to have an amazing and talented family and a couple of interesting hobbies...

Out here on the perimeter…

Family:  Inge, Matthew, Tim
Hobbies: Gemstone faceting, 3D Modeling and Rendering, Cooking

About the picture

That's me again, this time standing in one of the 27 dishes of the Very Large Array radio telescope in New Mexico. Visiting astronomical facilities and engaging with the people who make these amazing instruments work has been a life-long passion.
