Marijn Merkx

My name is Marijn Merkx. I graduated in Business Innovation and currently work (🍔) for Enexis. Originally, I’m from Breda, but I moved to Tilburg one year into my bachelor’s. My first year in Tilburg, I mostly swam alone because I wasn’t aware of Avalon’s existence. Luckily, Ties scouted me and I’ve been with Avalon ever since.

You can always come to me with anything that’s on your mind. You can email me at: Alternatively, you can always come up to me at practice, Avalon events or text me (you can find my number in the Avalon group chats).
