My name is Jerry van Beers. I live in Amsterdam and work for an IT department of a large eductional organisation. I own a Macbook Pro. I have a six year old (at the time of writing of course) son, and of course a lovely girlfriend who is the boys’ mother. In 2006 I gave up smoking: the best thing I ever did. I like to cook and read, but don’t read as much as I would like to (due to the five year old). Ocasionally I work on this website.
