I was the luckiest kid when our family bought an Amstrad PCW computer when I was 10. It had word processing software and a Basic interpreter, which came with a reference guide 10 levels above my head. Luckily there were also some examples, and experimenting and teaching myself I got hooked on programming!
Professionaly I've been thru coding, supporting business to be understand IT better, requirements engineering and am now back at coding.
Other interests are jazz piano playing, outdoors activities, beach volleyball, social life and being a (good...) parent.
