Solution oriented, accurate in my work and truly passionate about computers and technology. I'm
practical and motivated by responsibility, results and acquiring new skills/knowledge. I am
comfortable working both alone and in teams, but appreciate a good team that is open to (and
providing) constructive feedback and discussions. I'm eager to learn when faced with problems or
technology I don't know, either through courses or on my own initiative.
I started coding just before year 2000. I dabbled some with HTML/CSS before I got involved in an
open source P2P application community (C++). Seeing how people were able to make that program do
whatever they wanted sparked something inside me.
Today I prefer working with web and mobile development. But my greatest interest is in IoT and
"connecting" the internet and the physical world together. Making something happen in or because
of the real world is still incredibly fascinating. I am passionate about clean code and strongly believe
code quality is necessary to enjoy working on a project.
First understand the problem, only then attempt to solve it
I've never bought a new computer...
I got interested in computers and technology early. My mother had a position in IT where she
would bring home "old" computers and hardware. I suspect she planned to use this for her home
office but luckily for me I was allowed to have fun with it.
I remember I bought my first expensive piece of hardware in 2000 when I was 15, a Geforce 256
Annihilator Pro from Creative Labs - with 32MB DDR (1) ram! Since then I've bought a rather
alarming large pile of hardware and related stuff.
Today my main interest is in server hardware. I have a server rack in the storage room where I've
stashed the AV equipment and a couple of servers. In 2017 I built a "new" virtualization server
that you see on the article image.
It all started with an old Honda...
Or, to be fair it started with a Suzuki RMX 50cc. When I was 15 I got my first motorized vehicle
something in me changed. I had never really been interested in cars and stuff but driving on my
own changed all that.
I got my first car just before I turned 18, my dad and I traveled to Germany and found an old but
good condition 1992 Honda Prelude. A few years, cars, engines and lots of tires and track
days later I still love the soul calming feeling of driving off towards nothing and everything
at the same time.
The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred.
I just like to shoot things...
I think it was my godfather who was a freelance photographer that sparked my interest in
photography. I mostly capture the things that are around me. That used to be a lot of cars, as
the years have gone I focus more on my family and nature.
