I am a versatile web developer with a feeling for architecture and an eye for detail. I love to program rich applications for the web and/or mobile, using modern technologies like HTML5 and Python/Django. Although I am quite skilled with JavaScript and CSS, I am most productive with ES6, React and/or Backbone, Webpack and Sass/Compass.

I enjoy test-driven front-end development, using tools such as Tape/AVA, Mocha, Chai, jsdom and Sinon.


As of June 2017 I have accepted a permanent position at TMG (Telegraaf Media Groep). I am no longer available for freelance assignments.
