Profile:

I started with computers and software development at age 10. I was hired by Link Data Security (Denmark) at age 16, and worked there for 7 years in software research and development. In july 1997 I moved to The Netherlands and started Spinner Software.

I'm not your average kind of software developer. Where most software developers are very good in specific technical areas, I have a broad experience in developing applications for small and large businesses. My interests are in new technologies, research and development, project design and architecture, and product management.

I have tried projects ranging from highly technical solutions to simple windows applications, but always with the firm belief that the customer is right, and never forgets that the end-users are the ones to use the software. I never develop a solution simply because it was the best technical solution, but always chooses the user's point of view.

I'm a real team player. I'm very good at learning new technology, and does not stop thinking about a problem simply because the clock turns 5.

I have a unique perspective on new technology, and the ability to quickly adjust to a given situation. I'm easy to interact with, and have the ability to explain technical issues to non-technical people.
