Living in the Netherlands, I'm a GUI-oriented Xubuntu user looking to help people by writing tutorials and helping on IRC (I'm often in #xubuntu and #xubuntu-devel) and mailinglists (xubuntu-users, which I administer, and xubuntu-devel).
Though not of much use to Xubuntu, I'm fluent in (object-oriented) PHP, XHTML and CSS. I've also toyed with the GIMP and Inkscape.
Besides, I'm very familiar with Xubuntu so I can help most people with most basic and some advanced tasks. I also have a small amount of experience with Ubuntu.
Dutch is my native language, and I can officially call myself a "near-native speaker" when it comes to English. Writing is something I quite enjoy - a skill I use in writing tutorials regarding, among others, Xubuntu.
- For upstream Xfce I've done Dutch translation work, most notably for Thunar.

- Helping with Xubuntu in #xubuntu on irc.freenode.net

Plans & Goals
