Hi, my name is Sjef (pronounced like chef in chef cook), I'm 29 years old and originally from the Netherlands. I'm currently living in Chicago where I am a PhD candiate at the sociology department of the University of Chicago.
I'm a big movie(theater) fan although I don't seem able to remember the names of the actors and directors very well. I try to see as many places in the world as possible, but for no particular reason other than change I've never travelled below the equator (will do one day I hope). Although I like to cycle, I prefer motorized transportation for longer distances; up to 5.000 km I enjoy a good road-trip but anywhere further you'll find me in an airplane. Besides cycling I try to go for a swim as often as my schedule allows me to.
I like to think of myself as low maintenance; a cheep beer and a good conversation once in a while will keep me going.
