I like nerdy things. Passionate about video game connected services and making people's social lives richer through thoughtful product design and online networks. Over 10 years of professional experience in the video game industry
. I currently work on product at Playmob
, a company that connects game developers with charities for in-game item sponsorships.
I'm also learning web application development again in Ruby on Rails, so I know what the heck the engineers are talking about.
Enjoy cycling, reading (alternate history and science fiction (Mars, time travel, robots)). Unsuccessfully recovering TiVo-holic. Space nut
, gamer, atheist, web developer/coder, Apple aficionado, pro science, pro rational thought and behavior.
In case you're wondering, despite the Dutch name, I don't speak the language much. My father is Dutch (and my mother German).
I also maintain a Gamers circle, where I post more gaming news than in public. Let me know if you'd like to be added to that.
Current gaming obsessions: Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft.
