About Me

I am a technical lead developer/architect with 17 years of experience in delivering solutions that meet both the technical and business needs of the customer. Both my Dutch and English are fluent and I am well versed in communicating with people from all departments and at all levels of the organization.

For the past 7 years I have been leading teams of people with different backgrounds and skill sets and enabling them to work creatively and productively together on business solutions tailored to the customer's specific needs.

I enjoy acting as a bridge between business and development teams and guiding my team in the design and implementation of architectural designs that combine the best technologies and solutions for the challenges at hand.

As a programmer I specialize in .NET technology stack in all its flavors, including (but in no way limited to): Windows Azure (Cloud), C#, MVC, Entity Framework, WCF and client-side frameworks like jQuery, AngularJS and Knockout.

Working closely with my customers enables me to find answers that cater to both the technical demands and the business case requirements of the project. I especially enjoy working on demanding projects that require bringing complex requirements into focus and finding the best solution.
