About Me

I am a natural born coder with a love for beautifully written code. My main focus has been back-end development in C# on the .NET platform. Lately my focus has been Web APIs, but I also have experience with MVC and Web Forms.

When your company faces an IT challenge, or if you temporarilly have to scale up your team, I stand ready to bring with me an unmatched depth of real-world experience.​ My area of expertise - other than my solid software development background - includes Dev Ops in Cloud Hosted Environments, as well as Building and Configuring Infrastructure. Database Modelling and Leading Teams are also on my repertoire.

Software Development

16 years in the field of Software Development makes me a strong Fullstack Developer. My main focus has been Backend .NET Development, but recently ReactJS and also AngularJS

Software Architecture

Experience building large scale systems in both cloud environments and also on classical data center hosted infrastructures. Now focused on the Microsoft Stack on Azure.

Strategy & Planning

As a CTO at Luxtripper I've been part of the leadership team, and in that role I have been given the opportunity to work on the overall strategy for that startup.

Besides That

I am a Special Constable with the Metropolitan Police, which I find extremely rewarding. It gives me a different perspective on life and it helps keeping me fit. On top of this I also try to study Russian for fun; but I think my girlfriend has given up on me by now. Besides that I try to run regularly to keep me fit both physically and mentally. I’m also a member of Mensa since 1998; don't hang out with them much though, but I quite enjoy their opera nights.
