Born in the 1970s in Wellington, New Zealand, thanks to my amazing parents Pete Hermens (who emigrated back in the 1960s from Holland) and Sefulu Hermens (who emigrated from sunny Western Samoa also in the 60s).
Met my wife Karla (bizarrely enough was also born in New Zealand to immigrant parents) in London back in 1999. We are blessed with 3 lovely children & 2 mischievous cats. We live in London.
As punishment for having such a great life I support the following sports teams.
None of these teams has ever won their respective competitions during my entire lifetime.
Football (Domestic UK): Tottenham Hotspur (Champions 1961)
Football (International): Netherlands (Runners up World Cup 3 times)
Football (America): Jets (Superbowl January 12, 1969)
