Hi my name is Emile Bons. I'm a year old software specialist from the Netherlands, living in Nijmegen.

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 lived in Jakarta, Indonesia for two years. 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.

Kind Regards, not my signature ;-)
