About Me

I’m originally from St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean, but now live in The Hague/Den Haag. I’ve filled out so many of these, I’m pretty much forgetting about me, so I’ll just say that I’ll let the rest of the profile fields tell the story hehe

Oooo except, I do game (XBox Live) and am always looking for new targets, er sorry, game companions, so get at me on Live. Gamer tag is MelChan.
