Self Introduction

Hello, my name is Merlin and I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Science in New Zealand. I was born in The Netherlands, and when I was 10, my family bought a 15 meter long sailing yacht and we went on a journey to New Zealand. I lived on that boat for 3 years, and the longest continuous trip took 33 days, so I have some sense of the confinement of a small vessel.


I am studying Physics, but I’m also really enjoying the maths courses I’m taking, as well as Computer Science. Apart from studies I like video games and I like watching TV shows and movies. I also enjoy playing soccer, and playing the piano.
