I studies computer science (in Dutch: hogere informatica, technische informatica) at the Hogeschool van Utrecht in The Netherlands. Then I started working as a software engineer for Stabiplan B.V. There I learned to develop software using all kinds of techniques (Delphi, C, C++, LISP, COM, .NET, development life cycle, development services like automated builds and tests) and also worked as a team lead. Together with the team lead team we implemented Scrum in the organisation which was challenging and fun.
In 2015 I stared as software engineer / architect at Solviteers in Houten. There we also use Scrum for the development process.
I also did a lot of ICT-related work as volunteer like building web sites and system administration for non-profit organisations. One of them is Compassion where I worked for 1 day a week several years.
Another part of me is heart for youth in need. In that area I am starting a second carreer including certifications.
