Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

My interests are in the design and implementation of programming languages, compilers, IDEs, toolkits, run-times, APIs, and life cycle development tools. Examples are tools to monitor and analyze performance, support agile development workflows, or to visualize internal execution. I have a PhD in the design of an object-oriented language that was one of the first languages to support a built-in graph database for persistence.

I have worked on various complex software projects, such as Eclipse, Google Video Conferencing, banking systems, and Uber's apps. I can understand these systems quickly, improve their performance and/or effectiveness, and make them more accessible to others by explaining how they work. I do that through visualizations, writing books, or producing training materials.

Companies I worked at are IBM, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Google, and Uber. I currently am developing online meeting environments as part of my startup called "Ahead In The Cloud Computing."

I was born in The Netherlands and currently live in Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam. I have lived in the US for half my life, where I biked to almost everything. I have also run the NY Marathon while living in New York. I am a proud dad of two children. My youngest got sick as a baby, lost his hearing as a result, and now lives at a great 24hr care home in Holland. My eldest child is trans, which has made me extra empathetic to the needs of people like her.
