Technical Product Manager and Software Engineer
I am a Technical Product Manager and Software Engineer with over 15 years of experience.
I focus on delivering value, through seeking a fit between engineering results and customer needs, and through coaching engineering teams to more efficiency, reliability, and empowerment.
As a child I started with dBase III and built games using C and x86 assembler. Later, I spent many years writing Java for banks, PHP payment processors to sell digital goods and subscriptions, and designing the architecture of distributed systems for event ticketing peak sales, after which I moved to the center of Europe for the challenging fun of NodeJS, CouchDB and mobile event technology. I am now back in the Netherlands!
When I’m not coding or designing software I am biking around the Netherlands on my recumbent bike, working on a my short story collections, or figuring out how to get music out of my EWI.
I love to give talks and share knowledge.
