Adriaan prefers being forced out of his comfort zone with exciting topics ranging from random facts to everyday tips & tricks. Whether the topics are about his various hobbies, from playing guitar to reading classical novels, or new original ideas in science and philosophy, he gets a kick out of converting complexity into simplicity.
Within five years after finishing school, Adriaan has developed himself with numerous opportunities:
During his three-year study of Facility Management, he moved between waitering and manual labor to help pay for his studies.

“Educating and being educated is my primary goal.”
