After a brief stint as student of Applied Physics, and a slightly longer detour as a Psychology student, I ended up doing a master in Neuroscience. After that, I worked as PhD-candidate, and investigated brain functions in yound and old adults during attention and memory tasks. I am currently still finishing up that research in my spare time, in hopes of attaining a PhD title.

Fun as research was, the thing I liked most was actually programming the experiments and analyses. This drew me to Yoast. Yoast took me on as a developer, and has given me enough resources and patience to learn about development “on the job”. I’m very happy with what I’ve learned so far, and am curious to see what else I will learn in the upcoming years.

I live together with my wife and son in Wijchen, where Yoast’s HQ is located. In my spare time I try to be the best butler I can be to my wife, my son, and my two cats. I also try to play as many boardgames from my collection (which admittedly is expanding too fast) as I can, and dabble in some videogames. I also occasionally go outside.
