My date of birth is April 2, 1964. Raised in a little town in the Netherlands and via 1,5 years working in a hospital and 16 months as a pletoons commander with the Royal Infantery I moved into the world of IT. In the meanwhile I got married (and divorced again) and I have 2 wonderful sons (both studying, one doing high school and one doing Psychology at the Tilburg Univeristy). They share with my my passion for Harley Davidson and classic hard rock. I have a wonderful girlfriend named Jacqueline and together we enjoy life in NL and Europe as much as we can. We like to travel for fun. I also like to travel for work.
Sometimes I am looking at the globe I got from my grandfather and oversee the places in the world I have been on behalf of my work: Germany, Sweden, Switserland, France, Slovenia, Spain, Canada, England, Scotland, Belgium, Crete, Italy, the USA, Malta, Turkey, Sweden and at the moment Poland. This is what I really like, travelling and meeting other people and cultures. It also helps to understand better during session (as described in end user participation in Agile) what happens. Cultural differences are as old as mankind….
