Professional Profile

I love to travel, to see a lot of this wonderful world. I traveled to almost every country in Europe, to Russia, Cambodia, Brazil, the United States, Costa Rica, Panama, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Argentina, Paraguay and Morocco. I like to make the world a little better every day. To create something which lasts: not only creating something which lasts today but also tomorrow.

Working as a freelance IT professional gives me the opportunity to create something which lasts. Creating software that helps people in business and their private life today and tomorrow. Besides that it often gives me the opportunity to work where and when I want.

What I can do

My Services.


Software development or programming is the process of creating software. I have a broad experience in developing software in various languages and different frameworks.


To assure the quality of a software product, testing is essential. Testing can be done manually, automatically or by using a combination of both. I have experience with functional and technical (unit) testing using different frameworks and languages.


The process of software architecture should lead to an architecture of the software. This architecture is essential in the process of software development. This assures a software product which is manageable and maintainable. I like to support in the architecture design process.


In an era of software development for applications being provided as a service, security becomes more and more important. Security should be taken into consideration when developing software and should be a topic when performing assessments over the software products created. I have experience in both developing secure software and in leading security assessments.


The process of software consultancy can raise several questions. Implementing software can raise several questions as well. A couple of hours or even one hour of consultancy might provide the answers to these questions. I would be happy to guide you through the process and aim for the right solution to fix your problems.


The implementation of new software might need some support. Stakeholders might need training or coaching, processes might need some change, data might need migration and final acceptance tests might need to be performed. I would be happy to assist in this process, both in existing software products as well as with new software products.

I'm currently unavailable for freelance work.

If you have a project for which you need my help, which is not urgent, you can contact me to check if we can plan it for the near future.
