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 I am not sure how I can help my girlfriend. Looking for some guidance
I don't see how the ex could have any kind of legal demand for custody. Not married, not divorced, that only gives him obligations but no rights. Are you sure she even needs to do anything to "win"?

comment Counting out of context words?
Funny: I have a coworker from another country and he's still learning the language. Same story: limited vocabulary, also mixing general with specific words.

comment When is a child ready to start playing with bricks?
Do you mean stackable, dice-like blocks or Lego Duplo-style building bricks?
