Spinal (Spinal83 on Wikipedia) is a nickname of me, Sander de Jong, that I have used for many years. I used to be known on Wikipedia as ZanderZ, short for Zander Zoftware. I also use the name Ugoku Media but prefer to be known as Spinal on Wikipedia.
I was born and raised in Groningen in the Netherlands, where I also studied Chemistry at the University of Groningen. In 2010 I did an internship at Rutgers University in Piscataway/New Brunswick, New Jersey.
I made my first contribution to the English Wikipedia at July 9, 2004. Shortly after, I registered. I'm also registered at the Dutch Wikipedia, and Commons where I am much more active than here.
