ICT Consultant at Centric Netherlands B.V. Jan 2014 - present

From Centric I'm seconded to an insurance company in the Netherlands to help them build a number of webportals. I work here as a Senior Developer / Software Architect and work with them on building and designing the portals from the ground up. These portals are build with ASP.NET MVC and connect through a WCF service to two different backend systems. At Centric itself I'm providing workshops and I'm on a expert group giving direction on the education oppotunities for collegues.

Senior Developer at DreamTeam May 2011 - Jan 2014

I worked on a Silverlight product that enabled us to build better software quicker using Visual Studio and C#. Later this product was used as the management environment for a platform to create and design mobile applications. I worked on the web frontend that customers use to build their own mobile applications. We used the latest Microsoft and open-source technologies like Visual Studio 2012, ASP.NET MVC, HTML5 and jQuery.

Senior Developer at Unit4 Internet Solutions Feb 2010 - May 2011

In this period I worked on a number of websites and Silverlight solutions for various customers. I also was part of a Scrum team that developed a flexible and userfriendly solution for medical personel to manage their planning, resources and financial administration.

Software Engineer at Valk Software Dec 2007 - Jan 2010

At Valks Software I worked in a small team on the next generation of point of sale software using C#, WPF and WCF. The POS solution also included a webshop. Eventually the new version of the software was rebuild in ASP.NET to run online.

3D Specialist at Movares Sept 2002 - Dec 2007

I started my years at Movares as a trainee. After finishing my education I continued as a fulltime 3D artist. I created still images and animations for architects, engineering firms and the Dutch Ministry of Transport. 3D models were drawn in 3D Studio Max and Autocad. Postproduction was done in Photoshop.
Besides modelling I also worked on the development of 3D visualisation and simulation tools in .NET/C#, Java and Director.
