About Me. Thinking outside the box.

I'm a consultant, technologist, programmer, writer, engineer, videographer & blogger. I work at Sogeti B.V. as a Technical Consultant Infrastructure.

My interest spikes when I'm introduced to technological challenges. I have developed a healthy curiosity for new and innovative technologies and get enthused when I'm requested for my expertise about it. I apply my skills of conceptual and analytical thinking in my work, where I balance this with creativity and accuracy. Programming fascinates me because there is a certain interaction between its logic, complexity, flow and creativity. The thought of automating - which in turn ups the efficiency of the processes/users utilizing it - motivates and drives me. To use the full potential when working in a team; I introduce and write procedures, guidelines and standards in areas where this is just in development or introduced.

My personal activities created my passions for blogging about them and creating/producing small videoclips hence the videography. With the use of my knowledge of web-technology, I find pleasure in managing & maintaining the websites myself. Currently I find a lot of alternate brain activity through the sports: snowboarding, skateboarding & cycling. Other interests are technology news, movies, series, photography, family and friends.

Interact. How I connect digitally.

By means of social media, the way I have been using the web has changed considerably.

Succesful filtering has made my ways with the vast information available on the internet fast and efficient. I read interesting articles and share them via different social media accounts. Whenever a certain topic has gotten me intrigued, I'll write about it in my blog.


Personal View. How I interpret the world.

Bacause of the way how I connect digitally, I have developed my way of interpreting the world.

Of course everybody has a view on the world. By reading about other people's view, learning from them, taking pointers and interacting with them, I create & adjust my view and beliefs on things in the world.

Snowboarding. Passion: board sports, with focus on snow.

My history with snowboarding starts a while back, when it was kind of new and my parents did the natural thing of having their kids get ski lessons. Although I liked skiing at the time, there was this other thing that was catching my eye on the slopes, indeed Snowboarding!

So on the second ski-trip with my parents, I just went down to the rental store and got myself a nice snowboard set and got up the mountain trying to get the board down the hill. The first hill I chose, kinda was the highest around as I hadn't explored the area too well. All-in-all in the end I was able to ride down the mountain fairly good after one week of afternoon sessions on the slopes. After this first encounter I was totally hooked to snowboarding. Although time and money really weren't at my disposal to undertake snowboard-trips for my own, I just hit the snow-centers in the Netherlands to keep me from getting rusty. Along the way I got another good buddy of mine (Jorg) hooked as well and taught him the ins and outs as far as I knew and got him up and running as well. Later when I hooked up with my girlfriend Marieke, I managed to convince her to try out some snowboarding, as she had the same skiing classes I got. After teaching both Jorg and Marieke their basic skills, we all thought it was best to book a snowboarding trip. Our first trip was to Sölden, Austria and was the start of the adventures described in this blog.


Photography. Another take on my view of the world.

To relax my mind, I like to capture my view of the world. I do this by the means of photography and think of my self as a recreational photographer.

I have always had a thing for photography, but it was only since 2012 I took it a step further and entered the DSLR world. I thought this step would be too big, but as it's in my nature to properly research things before getting into it, the choice has been a good one.

I occasionally take out either my DSLR or phone to capture the world, I share some of this imagery via my photography blog and otherwise I upload it to my instagram account.
