About me

Now

What is this?

writing

I write to leave something behind. I’ve experimented with writing satire, essays, blog posts, and poetry, so far. The prospect of death is what compels me to write. I want my loved ones to feel like they can still have conversations with me even when I’m no longer physically present to engage with.

work

I write to leave something unique and beautiful behind when I’m dead and buried. I develop web-applications because it’s an in-demand skill that I happen to enjoy doing, however I don’t dream of working for an employer, I dream of becoming an independent writer and developer helping as many people as I can along the way.

books

I’m reading two books at the moment, one for work and one for pleasure.

Think, Simon Blackburn.

The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien. Translated into Dutch.

general

I’m Dutch.

Male.

6"2' (188cm)

Brown hair.

Dark brown eyes.

I live in the Netherlands.

I’m 32.

I keep fitness simple. I run; prefaced by some pull-ups to get my heart rate up. I hike, walk, ride a bike as often as I can, and don’t drive unless I must. I like to ski, too.

I’d describe myself as a socially-progressive secular humanist, pragmatist, and environmentalist.

I hold an MSc in Business Information Management from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.

I specialized in IT management, online-business development, and analytics.
