Experienced front-end developer and site/interaction prototyper, able to quickly learn new skills and languages as needed. Building in and working on large CMS platforms; like Drupal, CQ5, Wordpress and Escenic.
As the title states; I am a front-end developer, interaction designer and prototyper from the Netherlands. In 2006 I graduated at the Willem de Kooning (part of University of Rotterdam) as a Bachelor of Applied Science in the field of Multimedia Engineering.
I have worked for different companies since then specialising in different fields each time; from testing to developing sites. In the years that followed I picked up many skills to make myself an allround front-end developer.
Currently I work for Liberty Global as a Technical Producer; this function allows me to develop code (j2ee, html, css, js and whatever else is needed) but also involve myself into the prototyping phase of projects. Reading through documentation and advising product managers whether a third party solution will be usable/implementable or not.
