About Me

An innovative soul.

Building an automated world

A few apps at a time.

Starting on CBM64, using technology has come natural to me. Based on a civil engineering degree, I now have more than 15 years of hands-on experience working in the software industry.

  • Successful entrepreneur
  • Knowledge of a range of technologies within the Java ecosystem
  • Good at understanding and taking advantage of new technologies and processes
  • Knowledge and experience from multiple roles within the ecosystem, including security
  • Hands-on experience from new media, transport, public and banking sectors
  • More than 200k combined Android application installs - just for the fun of it
  • Performance-enhancing open-source contributions for mission-critical projects

Fun fact: I have an identical twin brother!
