Full CV


My name is Jan. For some reason, the Dutch insist on writing my name as J.P.M., and I do not like that. Also, if you're going to give your child three names, and the first one has three letters, why on earth wouldn't you choose a second and a third name that starts with the second and third letter of the first name, respectively? Seems like the most obvious thing to do.
