After graduating as a graphic designer at the Art Academy of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in 2003, my interest began to shift to the more dynamic and interactive working areas. I mastered Flash ActionScript 2 and a bit of HTML and CSS and started designing and building Flash websites. I started working as an interaction designer at Dedato where I can combine my skills as a graphic designer as well as the more abstract workways of a webdesigner.
When the Flash websites were slowly starting to die out, I started to miss the technical part of my job.
So I started looking into open source content management systems and tried to comprehend all the different techniques involved when building a website in WordPress. After mastering HTML, CSS, PHP and the WordPress Codex (all necessary to build your own WordPress theme) I started developing WordPress based websites and loved it!
