I enjoy talking with people of different backgrounds and disciplines, listen closely to their use cases and translate this into technical specifications and made-to-measure implementations. I enjoy rapid prototyping and (user) research as much as well-organized code and rigorous testing.
I'm experienced in working in highly international teams, on-site and remotely across different time-zones.
I speak Deutsch, English, Français and Nederlands!
🇺🇳 In the past I worked quite a bit with the United Nations in New York. Some projects are listed in the work section below. I wrote a full case study about the biggest project, you can read it here. I've also worked with German online newspaper Zeit Online on a datajournalism and datavisualisation project which won a Information is Beautiful Award in 2018.
🎨 In my former life before becoming a full-time developer, I built interactive installations using Processing & Arduino that make the internet accessible by foot, and illustrated the "juicy vocabulary of computer science" in a website named "Salted Hash".
🎓 I have a degree in Artifical Intelligence from Universiteit van Amsterdam, where I wrote a thesis about Computational Creativity - this is the research field that tries to formalise processes of creativity and how to make computers creative.
