This computer stuff started with gaming and fiddling around on the C64/Amiga/PC. When the internet came along things changed, and I could do more with my interest. Creating things on the web introduced me to programming in general. With this enlightenment - and my knack for being creative - brainstorming ideas ended up in the world of ad agencies, and later digital agencies. This curiosity in understanding business domains transferred to the world of software and software architecture. Before I knew it, I got into things that I later would learn were in the Domain Driven Design space.

For the majority of this century I have worked as a consultant focusing on full stack .NET development, putting my earlier experiences to work and piecing it all together. Today my main interests are towards architecture, cloud and distributed systems, and luckily web/http is an integral part of these systems.

I like to speak, learn and discuss things in our field, so we might already have met somewhere along the way!

In my free time I like catching a good movie or TV-show, digging for new music experiences, playing board games and socialising with friends over good food and natural wine. You might find me poking around in the garden, by the grill advancing my vegetarian Mexican cooking or relaxing in a hammock with some podcasts or maybe even reading some graphic novels. Vacation is a state of mind, but nothing beats the real thing! Whether it's hitting a big city for the weekend or relaxing in the countryside – I'm always keen looking for the next adventure.
