It al started in 1996 as functional tester at an organization which takes care of financing students. After a year Marcel started to work for G&D (now called Sogeti) as a software developer. After an intense training period he was assigned to KPN a nationwide dutch telecom operator for almost two years. Wanting to move on Marcel switched to Atos Orgin. In this five year period Marcel fulfilled several functions as senior developer, functional designer, information analist, architect and project leader.

In 2003 another switch was made to the province Groningen as an information analist with special interest in information architecture.

Especially open sources products such as Drupal and assignments combined with media elements are Marcel's favorites.
