I'm an experienced app developer and tech lead with a passion for exploring the ways mobile technologies can change our lives for the better. I've a keen eye for design and think apps should be beautiful inside and out.
Right now I'm iOS architect for Marktplaats, the leading classifieds site in the Netherlands and part of the eBay family. Previously I lived for six years in China, where I co-founded (and now direct) trainchinese, a powerful set of apps for mastering Mandarin Chinese.
My skillset includes:
- Designing and engineering mobile apps for iOS and Android, natively and cross- platform with Flutter
- Hiring and coaching developers to get the most out of their precious skills, and with maximum enjoyment
- Architecting Continuous Integration with Jenkins
- XCUITest with SBTUITestTunnel for mocking and performance
- Machine learning theory and practice with CoreML
- Design with Inkscape
- I speak conversational Mandarin Chinese and a smattering of Dutch
