I am a web-developer from New York City, born in '92 and raised in a small city called Hoorn, just outside of Amsterdam (NL). I have been in love with computers and electronics in general ever since I can remember. As a little boy I often frustrated my parents because I screwed open electronics at home to see how it looked and worked on the inside. I am extremely passionate about startups, innovation and languages, and I would love to work on something that could potentially change the lives of millions or even billions of people.
When I was 15 I discovered a security leak in my high school's computer network, giving me remote control access to over 800 computers at 5 different schools. In college I was one of 8 students selected to work on a project for the European Commission. This ended up taking me to Slovakia and Norway to research cultural similarities and differences between our countries and to co-found Mediashake, a social network for European creative students. In college I also created a social music player and Spotify clone inside a Facebook canvas using APIs from 7digital, Youtube and Facebook about half a year ahead of the Spotify-Facebook collaboration. Last summer I co-founded a web-application which in real-time displays the live location of analog homemade rockets fired at Israel by terrorists, which we sold 3 months later. I've worked on projects for numerous Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, Coca Cola and Nestlé, as well as smaller businesses and startups.
Right now I'm looking for a company in NYC to join. Let's talk!
