At the end of the summer in 2008, we bought a 1964 Ford Taunus Transit FK1250. ‘We’ being Michiel, my brother in law and myself. Our goal was to restore this bus to its former glory. And, to enhance it a little.

The slogan we’ve been using ever since ITQ was founded in 2001 is Passion for Technology. But it’s not just a slogan; it’s our ‘raison d’etre’ and the reason we have a future in the world of IT.

My blog's


I’m greatly interested in technology and how this technology can benefit an organisation or the impact of this technology an Macro economic situations. Therefore, I regularly visit large international events to discover new developments and to keep my knowledge up to date. A few of the events and conferences I’ve attended: Hack In The Box Amsterdam (HITB AMS), Hack In The Box Kuala Lumpur (HITB KL), VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) San Francisco, VMware User Group (VMUG) NL, vForum NL, VMworld Europe and USA, OHM, System Centre University (SCU) Basil.


beside of that I am a speaker on various events (like CITE2014, organised by IDG) and

I have been a member of the jury for HackWEEKDAY where students develop new solutions for Facebook and Mozilla, thus giving these companies an opportunity to look for new employees.
