I'm a seasoned software professional that occupied corporate roles ranging from development to project and product management to running a large business unit managing a unit with at its peak 50 professionals. From there is started my own business doing bespoke Joomla development.

I have been around the web actively since Netscape 0.5? At the beginning of the 90’s. At that time IE did not even exist and PHP was just born. I started bij building my own “CMS” based on perl and cgi-bin. After being involved in some other CMS i took a sabbatical to work on my career only to return on the battlefield when i was looking for a multilingual CMS with some form of ACL, Joomla 1.6 was discovered (by me).
At some point I decided to make it my business, initially with limited success. In may 2013 I decided to attend JandBeyond in Noordwijkerhout. The jury is out if this was the best or worst decision ever, the conference and community felt like a warm bath and I was hooked.
Following the conference a partnership formed resulting in the Viryagroup LTD, a full service webcompany, where my partner and i had complementing capabilities to make it a success.
From there we serviced many companies and did some large bespoke development projects.
I became more and more active in the community participating in many different teams/ working groups and speaking on various topics, ranging from less, debugging and SVG’s to name but a few.
Since approximately 2015 i have been part of Production Department ( initially called production leadership team) with a strong interest future and architecture.
