About me

I'm Aaron van Geffen, a web designer, programmer, and graduate of the master's programme in artificial intelligence at Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

During my bachelor's in computer science, I took the opportunity to do a minor in Dutch linguistics. I'm very grateful I did, because it sparked a fascination for languages — how they are produced, and how they interrelate. Studying Japanese in the evenings eventually led to a memorable backpacking trip in the summer of 2012 and, after completing my bachelor thesis, culminated in studying at Rikkyo University in Tokyo.

When out exploring the world, I like to take photos with either my trusty Canon EOS 500D or my iPhone 6S — whichever's at hand, really. Over the years, I've learnt to make the most of my photos by doing post-processing on the raw photos either camera produces using Adobe Lightroom CC. Have a look at my photo page to see how that fares.

I owe a lot of my programming skills to being involved in Open Source Software projects. At the moment, I'm happily tinkering away on OpenRCT2, an open-source reimplementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. In the past, I was involved as a core developer for Simple Machines Forum, which also gave me the opportunity to travel to the United States in 2009.
