designer / developer
Creator of Megaproductive, Followerbase, Startup ebooks, Chiefly (sold), and Username Alert. Publisher of KerstmisGids (Dutch). Former netlabel owner. Open source contributor. Small-scale investor in digital assets and web property. Occasional home studio musician. Productivity enthusiast and GTD adept.
Started out as a designer, took an interest in development, and have been starting web/creative projects ever since. My constant drive to create and improve turned me into a serial maker and entrepreneur.
Web and creative
I've built a diverse portfolio of web and creative projects over the years, ranging from niche blogs and communities, to products and services for internet entrepreneurs. Some have turned into small ventures while others remain active as pet projects.
Featured below is a selection of my most notable projects. For a more extensive list of past and present projects, see this blog post.
I'm using Dribbble for showcasing my design work. Check out my profile for sketches, early-stage designs, and finished works.
Doing my part
Part of being a developer is writing clean and reusable code. This is a trait I still think is underrated by many. Even in the early stages of building something new, I always look for pieces of code to refactor, reuse in other projects, and/or turn into stand-alone packages. Most of these packages get published to public repositories under an open source license.
Aside from contributing to the open source development community, I'm also actively involved in the maker community, and am occasionally asked to write guest blogs about productivity, personal development, and bootstrapping.
My public PHP packages are available from Packagist, and can be installed with Composer. These packages range from vanilla PHP helper classes, to packages that add functionality to Laravel applications.
