    Why I Tech

    Math is beauty, IT is empowerment. I love when ideas come to life, become visual and touchable.
    Tech provides us with an unbelievably rich toolbox of libraries and frameworks, but also ways to collaborate and strategies to tackle complex problems and handle difficult settings. My passion lies in bridging between technology and business – I strongly believe these worlds need to move closer and even integrate. Next to solving problems and implementing solutions, we should be all sharing more of the ‘aha’-moments.

        Why I Tech

        I love technology whilst it has no agency, one has the opportunity to be purposeful in it's invention and application to create a better world. We absolutely need to think about the implications of technology to our society as a positive narrative in creating the future we wish to have together, not the one we wish to avoid.
