Asking the right questions?…

Through hardship and persistence…
Wise, though fun and easy-going

In line with Ricardo Semler's pillars of Love, Openness & Trust.

Because with more than 20 years of technical & creative experience, I currently design and develop DAMN GOOD software, while, during the corona crisis, I'm spending more time back here in the western world, after having expanded my horizons by frequently traveling in the past 7 years, to quite remote places and having been in pretty dire (understatement) circumstances.

Ironically unexpected, I have found a nice balance by this, for which I enjoy an ideal living/working condition (for me) in a wholly unorthodox way, because…

We run on the equivalent of a 12-watt light bulb and so the pitfall is that we might be so busy with being busy, that we don't notice that this limits our perspectives, while we loose contact with ourselves and/so forget what's actually really important to us.
 
So I only work when it comes natural – being content with the little things that are truly important to me, so that I always enjoy the work I'm doing, because that makes everything easier and therefore more pleasant for everyone involved, while I, logically, reduce my carbon footprint – simple and logical, right?

That's what I love

… And I wish you

Nothing less!

What I do? What are my capabilities?
More important than what I do is how I do what I do, which involves a different approach in many ways, that start from the ground up.
Never really having fitted in a box and always having remained a free thinker, my qualities are difficult to describe in a few lines of text.
However, they largely spiral around (in a reductionism/chaos-theory-kinda-way) the free thoughts similar to those of Ricardo Semler (here above), which basically comes down to something like this:
Pleasant is easy, so we should first find the meaningful pleasance.
Other than that. Here is some of the stuff I use and/or do.
And here some websites and/or clients I've recently worked on/for.

I have worked with Bjorn on a couple of projects and found him to be an innovative thinker. He is very good in analyzing an issue from different perspective and providing technical options and answers for possible implementation and resolution. He has also got a great can-do attitude and a good disposition which makes working with him easy and productive.

Bjorn is a professional, reliable, creative and thinks outside the box. These qualities allow him to, very well, map ideas and business requirements into real solutions. I highly valued Bjorn in my projects.

Working with Bjorn has been quite a great experience. He always manages to impress me with his great technical skills and his deep interest in making things work. He is a great team-member, always willing to volunteer for the task, and delivers great results, on time. However, he does not need micro-managing as he is quite capable of leading the pack as well. The thing that makes working with Bjorn a joy as well, is that he has a happy and joyfull personality. He is fit and has an attitude of comraderie with others. He always manages to do whatever what was needed - and beyond - with great intrest. He is tackle though situations and make them seem like fun. A great resource and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend him.

I am widely interested, eager to learn and (not only) my (multimedia) background has given me a good dose of creativity and imagination. Creative and not just accepting what is, I usually do the craziest things for my customers.

I grew up in the audiovisual company of my family, built a computer hardware interface at TU Delft at 10 years old and wrote software for it in Basic and Assembler, but also made 3D animations and video productions for the company of my family, often also programming effects and tools for those purposes.

However, having seen quite a bit of different things and having thought a lot about my experiences and the world I see around me, I believe now it's the time to start working on things outside of the technological-spectrum ... To be continued! 😉

41 years old. More than 20 years of experience. You usually find me on a mountain, in a foreign country (usually speaking their language), in the gym or somewhere behind my laptop and even still, sometimes, behind the decks.
