Shanghai, China


Age: 46

WordPress Consultant & WPML Specialist

I was born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, have been living in Beijing, China since 1998 with a brief 2 year intermezzo in Valencia, Spain (2008-2010) and recently moved to Shanghai, China.

Naturally I speak a few languages and I think that is (part of) the reason that when I rolled into WordPress website development, internationalisation and localisation became very important to me.

It is therefore almost no wonder that apart from being WordPress Consultant, I am also WPML Specialist (WPML is the plugin to give WordPress websites multilingual functionality).

I am the founder and Lead Developer of Senlin Online and if I am not busy with client work, I spend my time fine-tuning my WordPress Starter theme soblossom, developing plugins or blogging via WP TIPS.

To give back to the community and help people with their various problems, I always spend part of my time in the various WordPress related groups on LinkedIn; I even have my own WordPress related group there, the WordPress Helpdesk.

I am proud to be able to say that I have been a Core Contributor for a few WordPress versions now, including 4.0.
