Greetings, fellow experts,
In 1998 I successfully finished my studies to become an IT software architect.
Today I work as a data integration engineer and software optimizer for a fashion company in New York City.
Today I focus on (functional) programming in Java 8, and I'm mainly building data integration systems (moving data between databases and web APIs).
I have extensive knowledge of usability, internationalization, web site and web app design and development, and speed optimization. I know my way around various programming languages and conceptual paradigms.
Other things I do:
Being the best husband I can be to my better half.
Being the best dad I can be to my kids.
Music: Composing and playing my own, singing, directing. Computers are great tools in composing. My main musical instrument is the French Horn, but I dabble around.
Math: Teaching it to children who can´t learn it at school.
Rock cliff climbing: roped and free climbing on sheer rock faces and in climbing halls.
Articles on a variety of subjects are published in Dutch and English on my ever-changing website:
