Introduction

While I was born in the U.S., my mother was born in Rotterdam, and I feel a very strong connection to my Dutch roots. I can speak and understand some Dutch and make a point of improving my vocabulary during my annual visits to The Netherlands.

Where are you from?

Greenwich, Connecticut, USA, although I consider Rotterdam my "other" home.

What language do you want to learn?

Dutch, natuurlijk.

Tell something something about yourself

Having started four Meetup groups, I thrive on being active and involved. Nothing is more fun to me than exploring with friends, and that's why I enjoy putting together my annual trips to The Netherlands. Several friends join me each year because we all have a great time. My Dutch family on my mother's side is from Rotterdam. My grandfather worked with the company that restored St. Laurenskerk after the war and both my mother and uncle worked for KLM...so I feel very rooted in The Netherlands! I have an internet media company (InterNetwork) that developed an internet radio app (iNetRadio) and a social voice networking app (Blurt). I've also been fortunate to have developed friendships at various Dutch media including 100%NL and Radio Netherlands Worldwide. I make a point of reconnecting at each visit!

    Hi Clark, I am new to the group:) I am attending a car show at the Fitchburg Ma airport this weekend and will post flyers there. I will also cover the Orange Ma airport as I will be going to a show there soon too. Keep up the good work and I hope to be able to help out on ground transport some day.
