My story

I'm a web-developer with a love for UX-design, born in '92 and raised in a small city called Hoorn just outside of Amsterdam Appsterdam. I recently got a diversity immigrant visa and will be moving the states this summer.

I have been in love with computers and other electronics ever since I can remember. Even as a little boy I often frustrated my parents because I used to screw open all the electronics at home to see how things worked on the inside (and back then I usually had no idea how to put everything back and close it again). I am extremely passionate about anything related to startups or technology, especially when combined and would love to work on things that change the lives of millions or even billions.

I spend my days crafting things for the web in both the frontend (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery/JavaScript) as well as the backend (PHP, Python/Django/Pyramid).

Spil Games

My 2nd internship was at Spil Games in Hilversum, the Netherlands. With over 200 million monthly active users, Spil Games by far is the biggest provider of casual games. I ended up working in the Software Engineering team which mission it is to develop tools used by colleagues to do their work better and with less effort. During this internship I started working with Python and the Django framework for the first time, after which I fell in love with it. My final project at Spil Games was creating a world map visualizing gameplays on all of its websites, which ran on a screen behind the reception.

European Commission

During my sophomore year a group of about 10 students were selected from different classes, some were designers and some developers. This group would work on a social/collaboration platform for European media students. I was one of the people and in the following months worked on both the front and backend, travelled to Norway and Slovakia for research and supported Norwegian and Slovakian collegueas when they in return visited Amsterdam. The platform never really took off, but it was still an incredible experience and I'm still friends with some of the people I've worked with in both countries.
