Already from an early age I started dabbling with HTML (back in the good ol’ HTML 4.0 days), which eventually lead me to the Computer Sciences study at the Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen (HAN).

After graduating, I started working at various companies before ending up at Yoast. Besides developing in PHP, JavaScript and various other languages, I also like to spend my time on playing video games and card games, traveling and watching movies. I’m also one of the organizers of a local PHP meetup group, NMGN.tech.

At Yoast, I’m assisting the Special Projects team by expanding and improving the Yoast plugins, and maintain documentation on developer.yoast.com.
