Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I have a masters degree in Business Communication (Universiteit Utrecht, Netherlands) and started working in the late nineties writing on line help systems and internet pages. A +5 years search for a decent content management system to support such publications led me to Drupal (4.something). Over the last +5 years I worked as webmaster, developer, technical writer and project manager in various Drupal projects in companies and a university college in Spain and Belgium. I've been involved in Drupal as member of the documentation team (writing among others the embedded Drupal 7 help (, by helping out in forums, translating, being a driving force behind the Dutch Drupal website and by organizing events (most notably last February's Drupal Developer Days Brussels).

Since first using open source software and most in particular using Drupal I felt the urge to contribute back to the products I am enjoying using. As a non-progammer, I tried to contribute to the Drupal project by organizing events, writing documentation, translating and helping out other users.
