About

You might be wondering who the person behind the posts is…

Originally from the Netherlands, I am a self-taught web-app professional with more than a decade of industry experience. Since launching my career (driven by a fervent belief in the power of problem solving that focuses on the creation of elegant, clean, and above all else simple, digital products) I have worked with a diverse collection of large-scale companies in finding streamlined solutions for complex problems among a rich portfolio of thought-provoking projects.

And what I actually do…

As a full stack developer specialising in software architecture, solutions, tooling and development of web sites and applications, I am an expert in Node, React, GraphQL, Webpack, Docker, AWS (frontend + backend). Three years ago I decided to become location independent and work remotely. Following the completion of my projects in the Netherlands I gave up my apartment, packed my bags and jumped on the first plane to Bali. Now, after two years exploring the incredible cultures of South East Asia, I’m back in Europe. Currently residing in Berlin, my mind is fresh with ideas waiting to be executed.

And what this site is…

This blog is a place for me to share thoughts, concepts and ideas for modern Javascript solutions to eradicate complex problems that I wished didn’t exist when I started out.
