I am fortunate enough to have turned my passion, astronomy, into my profession. Apart from my work, I really enjoy:

- Music: I listen to very eclectic music, though my favourite band is The Gathering. I also play with some fellow Sterrewachters+ one theoretical physicist. We do covers in a style between Rage Against the Machine and Polka.
- Films and TV series: I spend way too much of my spare time in watching series like Twin Peaks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, House etc.
- Board games and video games.
- Tarot and astrology: enough said, I probably lost all my credibility as an astronomer
- Friendship bracelets
- Candles and incense sticks
- Coffee and chocolate, big addict I am
- Coca Cola
- Space settlements
- Oriental dances
- The sea/ocean
- Travelling
- Linux Mint
- Hieronymus Bosch and Gustav Klimt

I try to stay away from:

- Politics
- Religion
- Eating fish
