New waters ahead!

I'm currently open for new projects starting in august. If you're a company and think I could be a decent addition to your team, let's have a chat about that!

About

I'm a 1989 born generalist that makes a living by being a freelance UI-Engineer. While I do enjoy being a technical expert I'm shifting my journey towards a more complexity informed way of working. One outcome of this is the company Schubrakede I founded with my beloved brother Hannes.

When not working or learning I'm most likely building Duplo Towers with my son and wife, playing the guitar or doing photography.

Cognitive Edge

is a complexity informed consultant and training Company.

Cynefin® FOUNDATIONS online course

I often felt misplaced when running scrum on the inside but having a fixed scope and deadline on the outside. This plus an overconsumption of Dave Snowden videos on YouTube made me invest in an online course of Cognitive Edge. The lessons learned in this course stick with me ever since.
