Web Application Engineer

Been There, Done That

I'm a web application engineer with 10+ years of experience building everything from complex, high-traffic,real-time, web applications, to big content and media management systems. I have a strong, independent drive to figure out how stuff works, and learn new skills. I am fluent in many web related programming, markup, and styling languages, and have a good grasp of several others.

Skills

The world of the web changes at an incredible pace. Web applications are built using an ever shifting set of languages, frameworks and dogmas. I have had to adapt and learn. This can be a challenge, but one that is both fun and rewarding.

Real Languages, Too

As a bona-fide European, I have always been surrounded by many different languages. I grew up within half an hour's drive of three different language zones. Dutch schools have a strong focus on languages, and as such I have studied Dutch, German, French, English, Ancient Greek, and Latin. I am fluent in both English and Dutch.
