Hello, world!

I'm a father of one pre-schooler and one toddler. My stake in this site is to learn from you, and also to contribute as much as I can!

Based on my own childhood and parenthood, my specialties are (among others): twins, languages, and international aspects. For the record, I'm an identical twin and married to a fraternal twin. I speak 4 languages fluently and I've lived in 5 countries (Europe, Japan).

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at even more SE sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

Outside of this site, I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment What do you do when neighbor children that you don't know start coming over to your house to play with your kids?
@James, to make your question more specific (to get better and more useful answers!), could you add what your main concern or main objective is? Your kids' safety? Your property being stolen? Establishing contact with the parents, and agreeing on some rules?

comment What is cranial osteopathy?
At least in the first death mentioned above, CSO/CST was not the cause but rather the fact that medication was stopped -- this is not something even a trained CSO practitioner is authorized to decide.
