About Me


My name is Stephen B.R.E. Brown.  I was born in The Netherlands and trained as a developmental and cognitive psychologist (M.Sc., B.Sc., both with honours).  In June 2015, I obtained a PhD in cognitive neuroscience at Leiden University.

One of my passions is collecting, using, and tuning/maintaining fountain pens.  This web site is linked to my YouTube channel, to which I upload my fountain pen, paper, and ink reviews.
