Work experience:

As a gifted, fast learning autodidact I started commercial programming about 19 years ago at age 14. Not so much later, while still in high-school, I started my first business.
During these 19 years I not only worked on all kinds of projects and different platforms, building up lots of experience, but also constantly kept learning and broadening my knowledge.
Most of my work was one man full cycle/lifetime development, but I have been working in teams with mostly high graduated co-workers as well as leading my own teams. As a leader, Iím a good motivator and tutor. If necessary, I am able to work very flexible hours, especially on one man projects or if a deadline has to be met. For valued customers I am usually on call whenever needed.
