MY STORY

My excitement for "creating something new" was already apparent during my school years. Being lucky that I grew up while the mainstream internet was born, I quickly became fascinated of building my own websites for many years. All while experiencing the rapid advancements of computers as well as web technologies myself.

Today, while (mostly) not developing myself anymore, the great feeling and excitement I experience when I finally "publish" something new stayed as fulfilling as ever!

This feeling can nowadays be triggered by the launch of a new venture, a successful new team hire, an obtained investment, or an exciting new product feature.

My personality type is INTJ, a strategic thinker and planner by nature, and also called the "Architect" personality. Thus, you can call me the architect of impactful new ventures :)
