I am an independent digital chameleon with over 20 years of experience and enjoy working and growing alongside different creative disciplines and cultures.
I’m a Jack of many trades but definitely a developer and maker by heart. Over the years I’ve explored my many interests which has moulded me into the Full-stack Developer & Designer I am today. I'm confident in my abilities but l strive to stay curious, learn new things and keep an open mind on my views on work and, more generally, on the world.
I’ve been fortunate to be able to explore the world and even though I come from the small town of Spijkenisse in the Netherlands, I feel like a world citizen nowadays.
I feel enriched, personally and creatively by the many different people and cultures that have crossed my path. I strive to create meaningful and lasting relationships with my clients. My favourite projects being the ones that allow me to invest and go the extra mile.
I’m invested and pride myself on becoming part of your team.
A few fun facts about myself
I’m Dutch but I sound like an American. I love Star Trek and Star Wars. I'm pretty decent at chess. I have a Shiba Inu named Momo. I miss Anthony Bourdain. I climbed Mt. Fuji once on a whim, bad idea.
Dig a little deeper into my Resume
I’ve always been very committed to my place of work but had to follow my heart at times for the sake of personal development. This is why I have a very diverse skill set to offer and why I went back to school to study Communication and Multimedia Design at the age of 30.
