About myself

I am a highly professional and organized technician with natural risk management skills. These skills have developed greatly in the fifteen years since I joined NetApp: I have welcomed new challenges and capitalized on the training available through the company. An enthusiastic team member, I enjoyed being part of NetApp Netherlands. Performing alone as a on-site engineer I have developed good relationships with our customers and regularly receive positive feedback.

My hobbies are playing guitar, 3D sculpting, cooking and friends.


It is all about skills and expertise

My strategy is simple: to create a place where the best researchers and most promising students can achieve their full potential.
