After owning and operating a webhosting company for ten years, I decided I preferred building things. So I learned some Ruby and I started working as a developer. A couple of years later, I joined Blendle as their fifth developer. I helped create and scale their micro-transaction system, which processess tens of milions of transactions per year.

During my second year there I was in charge of running the core backend service and responsible for migrating our systems to Amazon Webservices. After the migration was complete and a brief stint as part of the data science team, I decided to move on. After two years, seeing the company grow from a handful to 70 employees, it was time for a change.


I help companies get new products out the door. Last year, I took over lead development responsibilities for AVG Programma. In addition, I build and maintain mission critical systems for Gites and Zerocopter.

Recently, I co-founded The Coder Room, a development agency with a focus on business driven development.

I like challenging, complex projects. I prefer data-driven projects and creating tools, but I don't shy away from the odd UI challenge.
