With his mother being of Indonesia origin and a Dutch father, Richard grew up in a multicultural environment. In his leisure time Richard pursues his fascination for everything related to language and culture. Whereas other people may choose to read a book before going to sleep Richard would sooner read a page on Wikipedia and then share all sorts of interesting facts and ideas with his colleagues the next morning.

Richard is aware of the differences between the ways that people of different cultures think and behave, and with his respect for other cultures he can always come up with the right translation solution.

Edwin was spoon-fed with English from an early age. During his time spent studying in New Zealand and the United States he added a further professional edge to his language skills.

Maikey gained national renown in 2016 by scoring the winning goal as an amateur footballer against FC Den Bosch. This was in the quarter final of the KNVB Cup.
