I am a system architect, technical project manager and software developer with over 13 years experience in web and software projects, covering custom personal homepages, database-driven, graphic-intensive web portals and tailor-made software for complex team processes. I specialize in Python, the Django Web Framework and Wagtail CMS.
After 5 years as the CTO of a medium-sized full-service media agency focused on the NGO-sector, I have spent the past 5 years working independently as a freelancer. My extensive technical knowledge (in particular relating to the Django-Python environment), together with a breadth of experience working closely with clients to create tailored technical solutions, has proven to be a productive and successful combination for clients ranging from internationally-renowned research institutes and NGOs to cutting-edge start-ups. I have a particular passion for making complex data accessible through human-friendly, efficient and visually-appealing web portals.
