About me

I was born in Hilversum.
My first real job involved building video applications using PHP and Flash at a media studio in my hometown, Studio Hilversum, including Online Personalities.
I graduated high school, moved to Austria, and started working freelance full-time.
While working for Art Digital, I've maintained and extended a custom e-commerce platform, that is used for stores such as Begra Magazijninrichting.
While working for WebwinkelKeur, a trust certificate for Dutch webshops, I've built plug-ins for popular e-commerce systems and worked on server infrastructure and web applications.
While working for Pricemotion, a automatic price-adjustment tool for webshops, I've maintained the web application and server infrastruction, and built plug-ins for Magento and an integration with Lightspeed e-commerce software. I've also built web scrapers, and developed a high-performance scraping framwork based on Python asyncio.
Among other things, I built a product configurator module for print products for ZoGedrukt.nl.
I moved to Bulgaria and incorporated as Kibo IT EOOD.
While working for OKE Online, I've optimized and built plugins for OpenCart- and WordPress-based e-commerce sites.
Together with Milko Kosturkov, I created Phast, a library for automatic optimization of PHP-generated webpages. Based on Phast, we released PhastPress, an integration for WordPress, which is now used by over 400 websites.
