Published Author of the book
UpTurn 2. A book written together with 7 entrepreneurs.
This book is about how personal development and how failures and f*-up moments actually lead to our success.
Founder of Curaçao Tech Meetups
Founder and Director of the amazing Curaçao Tech Meetups. Curaçao’s leading technology conference for everyone. This conference is built on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
Our mission is to create Curaçao’s Tech and Digital Ecosystem of the future. We focus to create the right narrative about technology, digitalization and innovation in the country of Curaçao.
I was born and raised on the paradise island of Curaçao. An island with blue, clear aquamarine waters and tropical breezes waving blowing through beautiful, green palm trees and a capital with colorful buildings in the South Caribbean. We have an endless array of sunshine to fuel your heart with endless happiness.
Career and education
My background is in Computer Science with specialization in business software engineering. I started computer programming at the age of 11. The track record and experience is in building online platforms at several banks, insurance companies, pension funds but also doing high profile projects for the Dutch Government.
Community Involvement and making social impact
Social and technology came together in my family. My father is a social worker and my mother used to work for IBM.
A perfect hybrid I would say. We use to discuss over the dinner table, the poverty in the neighbourhoods of Curaçao, which unfortunately still exists. That’s why I made my personal mission to combat poverty by using technology.
Get connected to discuss interesting endeavours. Looking forward to meet you either online or in real life. Officially I am based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands but I am on a regular basis per year in Curaçao to either buildup the country digitally or empowering our local communities.
