I’d already discovered my interest in computers from a young age, and it was an easy choice for me to pursue a career in this field. I first followed a study in Information Science at the Hogeschool van Utrecht, before putting my accumulated skills into practice at a number of companies. I then joined BSL as a software engineer in 1995, where my current position is System Architect / Information Analyst.
At BSL, I soon began to focus on the functional and technical design aspects of application and system development, working closely with our clients to meet their specific requirements. I also became increasingly involved in preparing offers, particularly where design aspects play an important role. I immersed myself too in developing systems using Oracle DBMS as the primary platform. In other words, I’ve been involved across the whole spectrum of system development during my years at BSL!
And when I’m not sitting behind my computer keyboard, I can often be found sitting at a piano keyboard. I’m a keen jazz pianist in my free time, performing in different groups and bands. I like to explore the great outdoors as well, and particularly enjoy active sports such as running, cycling and sailing.
